Why am I smiling?
Because I'm glad I've changed my media. I love working in clay. It feels like coming home after years of being away and being greeted by an old friend.
I started doing clay work in high school and college ceramics class followed by watercolor, ink, jewelry, beading, embroidery, fiber art, oil painting, pastels, masks and copper repousse. In my professional life, I was a writer. I still enjoy creating with words which is probably why I love my blog.
Working on the wheel creating functional work is just peaceful and meditative.
Which is why, I now have a brand new website. Created by my talented son, it showcases the new feeling in my studio as well as my new work.
And after many years of watching other artists on Etsy, I've opened my own store, SusangtCeramics.
Yes, I've changed. And I'm still smiling about it!
