One step at a time

Wow!  Can you believe it is already May?  I woke up to an incredibly sunny and cool morning – my favorite!  This week is already turning into a pretty busy one.  Today I am supposed to hear back about the job interview I had last week, and I am also going into Boston for the afternoon and evening with my husband and four of our Young Life kids to see Angels and Airwaves in concert!  I am pumped!  Thursday is my big critique for a guild I am trying to get into.  I am pretty nervous about it, but also very excited.  I hope they find my work refined enough and innovative to have me be a member of their guild.  If I do get in, I will have the opportunity to be in shows, craft fairs, get my work into shops, and possibly open some doors for teaching some classes.  A lot of great and exciting things can come from this.  So, pray for me on Thursday morning if you think to.  Here are a few of the pieces that I am bringing before the jury:

"Michele" - Crystalline bowl in Prussian Blue

One of my vases from this series - Copper Crystalline

One of my bowls from the collection, "Night Bizarre"

There is a sample of what I am bringing.  I am asked to bring 6-12 pieces of my work for the clay jury to examine and critique.  The whole meeting should take about an hour.  At the end they will tell me if I have been accepted or declined.  It will be pretty tough, I think.  I am just excited and hopeful to be able to move on to the next step in my own goals as an artist.  My kiln and wheel are on a hold for the moment.  I was all ready to have the proper wiring put in to fire my kiln, but it is a bit expensive for us to do right now.  I am going to wait and try out my other options for now.  Like I said, one step at a time!
