Making sandcastles is a bit like life.One moment you have build a big castle and another moment a wave is coming and then you have a half castle.Another building I did this week was a church.

Broken China

I had a fight with my wife last weekend, and most of our porcelain dinnerware is now broken in pieces.But now I have a lot of small pieces to make some sculptures.

Less Weird

So far so good this week, I did 2 abstract pieces.I ám thinking of adding some little figurative parts to let look the piece less weird,but what? Maybe fishes or people or a little mc donald?

The Client is the King

Not done much claywork this week;I was on the road ,visiting some clients ,and I sold 14 pieces.I have all the tiles in a big basket when I visit a client.Some clients are rough like elephants when searching in the tile basket.

One of my clients broke a tile.In the past I was not that happy when this happens, but now I smile at the client and say "Maybe this brings me luck" thinking at the saying;the client is the king.

More Miniatures

Some other caracters and a small portrait try of my daughter.I do that every morning before I start working;one full hour of meditation on one leg.And all my sorrows disappear from my leg into the ground.

Moi complaning about pottery?Sometimes on Monday morning before the coffee.But at other times it seems to me the most rewarding job a person could do ever.Not for the money but for the fun while working.Today I did a miniature in clay about a man with big muscles.

I ám happy with the biscuitporcelain that I use.The pieces are not too glossy and also not to rough.My piece the 'sleepingroom' turned out nice after firing.

Not nice to have a nightmare when sleeping,lucky it happens me not much.My last nightmare was that I has failed in highschool and instead of being a well payed salesman I was forced to became a potter.
