An Artist Journey - The ups and downs of creation, and how to keep moving forward.

Our Family Photo, After Divorce

My daughter just turned 5 and she has a project at preschool where they need a family photo. I am sure for most families this is no big deal, but not all families look the same.  In our instance this required me to text my ex husband to say “Hey, we need a family photo. Come on over and wear something appropriate.” His response was, “Ok, thanks for letting me know.” To many divorced couples this seems absurd, but I must remind you that the assignment was not for MY family photo, it was for the family photo of my...

Three Years

Three years is not that long, yet so much can happen in just three short years. This marks the three year anniversary of Off Your Rocker Pottery (OYRP). Looking back I am amazed at how much has happened and how far this crazy dream of mine has come.

I invite you to come along via my Facebook and Instagram feeds to see what kind of shenanigans this potter can get into.  A few weeks ago I was on a walk with someone when the topic of “Is the glass half full, or half empty?” came up. This man had a very interesting perspective that I had not considered before. He said, “It depends whether you are filling it, or emptying...

Composing the Symphony of Your Life

Their are times in life when everything just fits together perfectly. The perfect symphony, where mathematics and magic come together, enter your ears to transport your heart to a higher level. That song that you can’t help but jam out to! It lines up, and has a perfect spot for everything- like a full kiln load that fits every last pot. Other times, not everything will fit. Some pots will have to be left for another time, the next firing. You have to make a choice on what is more important, and what must wait. Like a musician with the...
