It is a large platter,@ 14" across, hand built rather than wheel thrown.While it hangs nicely on the wall, it has a foot, so it could sit on a surface as well. I like creating those options. When it gets that big across, there can be a possibility of cracking, so it is a victory not only in style, but survival.The freedom to push the clay to its outer limits and see how far I can take it.
We just finished celebrating the 4th of July.I watched great fireworks! I thought of the immigrants coming into the United States. In all those accents , arriving at Ellis Island,a new life in a new land of freedom, which they might call "A-mer-i-ka."
I travel a lot. I like to see first hand what I read or hear or have a fantasy about.What is that place is really like, compared to where I live? Reality turns out to be more interesting to me than all my speculations. I am grateful that I can do this. I know there are countries where woman cannot. I have visited there.
