Cy Twombly; from “A Scattering of Blossoms and Other Things”

Cy Twombly; from “A Scattering of Blossoms and Other Things”

“When I work, I work very fast, but preparing to work can take any length of time.”  ~Cy Twombly

I stumbled upon this quote today and it quite struck home.

I’ve been getting some pots made in the studio but it’s been an uneven drip rather than the torrent I’ve been hoping for.  In light of the quote upstairs it hasn’t felt like work at all- more like preparing to work.

I’ve been developing a new mug form, making some spice jars, doing some volunteer work and mucking around on the internet.  Beginning Saturday am I’m going to turn it up.  I’m at a ‘3’ and I need to be at a ‘9’.

I’ll be sure to keep you posted.
