This one is a little older, I made it about three years ago when I experimented with plaster relief a lot. At the time I didn't like how the colors turned out, since I wanted it to be more like our trademark tree. By now they grew on me, even though they do not look like our logo...ceramics are always good for a surprise, especially when one is lacking the experience...

There is no end to what my children have taught me, but the most important lesson was this...
Have been carrying my markers and pads around with me wherever I go. Proves to be an excellent way to pass the time and I really enjoy getting more doodling practice.

First graphic journal entry. 'You gave me the ground for my roots'. I take it this is by far the nicest feedback anyone has ever given me after attending my little talk. I feel so blessed and honored to have met so many inspiring and inspired people here. My first time taking part in a festival by myself where I did not know anybody. Once again it's shown you can only grow once you are leaving your comfort zone.

I have started a new diary today. Got inspired by the visual one a friend paints daily. I have kept a written journal for the last six years and am curious what it does to my record keeping when I use colors and images more than words...

Not the fanciest board material, but the message is out there. Spending a few days all by myself at a great festival at a lake. So much time to myself, such inspiring conversations. Looking forward to my little talk at #wasserfest . Enjoyed making the sign, that's for sure...

After the second firing. On the bw mask I only used acrylic binder for the light half. I glazed the eyes of the realistic mask so they would look a little like the lapislazuli eyes on Egyptian masks. The last one has been treated with copper sulfate and fired in a self built paper kiln. After the firing I took the red hot mask out of the amber and fired a feather onto it. I love the way the three masks complete each other and tell a story of the circumstances in which they were made, of me as a person and as an artist and work as a reminder of a great achievement for us as a family and as a team. By the way, the red mask says 'Forgive yourself' and will be lit from behind so the writing is glowing.

After the first firing. I am planning to wood fire the right mask and light it from behind. The left one will be glazed with a matte transparent glaze and the middle on I will only glaze the eyes for which  I used blue and white engobe and black undergaze. I envision something like mounting the three masks on a nice thick wooden board. Really looking forward to that.

Feeling blessed, deeply grateful and incredibly exhausted after organizing a very successful teacher training ceramics workshop. A big thank you to my colleague Gabi for the great team work!

This is me in clay. At last, I got inspired by all the productive and busy teachers taking part in the teacher training at #mitanandahof and made some #masks, too. We will build a #woodenkiln and fire them at the campfire place...I love the endless possibilities clay provides. Tired, but happy.

Early morning unloading of the kiln makes me happy for the rest of the day...
