This is from Barb Johnson at Chrysalis Pottery, forwarded to me by someone else. I really like it, and wish it to you potters for this new year. And their equivalent to all others who work with our hands.
Hands and hearts seem to me close together. I love working with my hands. So far I have not been able to include housework in the pleasures of working with my hands, but maybe I'll get there too. Hands are our original tools and it pleases me especially when they prove to be the best pottery tool for a task. I do plan pots before and as I make them, but there is always a part of the process that goes through some path other than my intention. From heart to hand, bypassing brain?
Happy New Year.
