Notes on recent creation cycles:
I have dialed in my days in a glorious way, the lucky days that I get into the studio. There are about three or four of them a week, and sometimes I literally grab an hour or two while O naps, or sometimes the babysitter comes. Or Daddy takes over so I can fire or hammer. Those days feel like the luckiest.
Five hours or more in which to create.
What I've been learning is to break things into tiny increments, being supremely patient with the length of time it takes for something to become itself.
All of the pieces you see above?
Well, they had their hearts written in sketches and dreaming many moons ago.
Bit by slow and patient bit they've come to be:
one solder join at a time,
one late evening moment to quietly file.
Mixed in with making these small delicacies I work on custom orders
careful to do so with the greatest of intention
because a LOT has been entrusted to be this time around.
Deep and beautiful healings.
Stunning ideas that blow my mind!!
The things I am building into their designs are so much more than metal, stone and hide. I have literally cried with the beauty these women have gifted me.
What a soulful bunch. What a precious gift to make for them.
This is my experience in the studio.
I have also worked self care into the mix of my hours, fully and powerfully aware that without
that piece I am so much less at peace in every aspect of my life.
Meditation is key,
sleep in decent amounts (though less than I'd like of course)
intense and purifying exercise
sweat and exertion
and cooling showers.
My business might be very small right now, but I am growing like crazy
my boy is growing strong and tall
and my center is holding.
I hope you are feeling grounded, too.
so few of you have the time to comment these days, I know how it is believe me...
but I miss your voices here in this space.
I'd be remiss if I didn't tell you that.
How are you, really?
