When I'm not at the gallery, I've felt an antisocial twitch. I've cooked rich comfort foods, taken long walks in the woods alone, and have taken to cuddling with the cats as much as earthly possible. They are usually very agreeable, but occasionally they make perches at the tops of the cabinets so that they can overview everything at a safe distance.
When I'm weary of trying to lure the cats to snuggle, I try to work at home. My work plans have been a bit derailed with my kiln not working. I'm slowly finding alternative plans until I can afford to take the kiln in to get it looked at. I'm not mechanically minded or a tinkerer and am afraid that if I mess around with it too much, I might damage it further. Perhaps I'll make some polymer pendants? Or do something with resin? Anything really to keep the funds still coming in. Once the kiln is fixed, I've got big plans. I will continue my porcelain experiments and press out some new metal clay designs. I have some interesting ideas that I'd like to try out.
It seems like I'm hunkering down until all possibilities of winter are gone and it's truly a warmer season.
