I came home from an amazing 2 week trip to Turkey to hear our studio collective was moving… in 3 short weeks!! So, after a mild heart attack at the idea of having to pay up and move all my glass, shelving, and kiln, I took a deep breath and did what I always do: pray and start breaking glass.
It started randomly at first, but then I realized I was making the cave cities I had seen in Kapakokya, thinking about how if they could embrace the chaos of having to live underground for long periods of time to, you know, protect their LIVES, surely I cold embrace the chaos of a simple (albeit heavy) move! Ahh, I love when perspective informs creativity, even if it’s telling you you’re being a big fat baby in the process!! I needed to hear it.
