This Artisan Life

Some say magic isn't something you do, it's something you are. Others say that their entire life is magical. While this might be correct for them, I would respectfully disagree that this doesn't work for me. I want my magic to be magical; I don't want to have to bring leaky faucets and flat tires into my magical realm. Having said that, there is a chance every moment to do something mystical, to connect with the nature spirits and the ancestors, to honor the old ways, and to walk the crooked path. This blog is about my journey, and how I celebrate the magic in the mundane.

Fire the World!

Okay, not literally ;)

It seems a long time since I've written, but it's taking a long time to fill the kiln! I'm making smallish pieces, and it's a pretty large orifice! However, I started working on some larger pieces today... watch this space. 

There are two 'in the meantimes' for you. One is another tile design, see image attached. I really like the way that it came out, although it's nigh on impossible to see here as just greenware. I'm looking forward to getting this one glazed...

The other 'in the meantime' is I'm looking for some 'hive mind' suggestions. Think of the tarot cards not just as images, but as personas. Now it's easy to see that with the court cards and some of the others, but what person would the Eight of Wands look like? What house would that character live in? As before, it's easier with some of the cards than others, but, for a moment, let's pretend they're all people. Watcha think?

More images to follow in the proverbial soon!
