Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, the kiln opened this evening after the last firing phase for this project and let it be known that none of my ceramics blew up in the kiln!!! AND they look like these! (20 or so each) This is a very important, document-able moment where the artist is found swelling with tearful joy at the simple discovery of her own work. Also important is that this kind of success inspires new energy for continued work. Thank God.
