Pulled this out of the kiln still nice and warm and WHAM! Instantly unstuck. The other piece I was suffering through finishing - well, it's drying. I'm still ambivalent about it, though.
Then this got my attention and I couldn't be more unstuck, more engaged.
Interesting that this is mirroring some personal life events too, but I digress. How did I not get that the two things often happen simultaneously or semi-simultaneously. Am I oversimplifying the complexities of the creative process? I am just thinking if you have a lot of tools in the tool box - stuck is a way less existential crisis-y, little downward spiral and therefore less impactful to the creative psyche. This isn't coming out right...I think it's just that sometimes you're ahead and sometimes you're behind.

I still feel the same way about the windy/water piece - wishy washy, but I don't about this one.
For this piece: I thought I'd capture the glaze process as I go along on this one (please, my super talented friends; chime in at any time if you think I need saving!)
