Here are snapshots of my process. I’ve never really seen these stages and it was interesting to see the evolution. Sometimes I think we get a little too hung up on the outcomes of whatever we are working on and we negate all that we’re learning along the way. Take a pause during your next project and see what you note. I was very struck by how juvenile my work looks in the beginning when I’m just roughing in the shapes. I realize that I basically like every stage along the way, but the carving and then the antique glaze that goes into the grooves of the piece are most satisfying to me. Good Luck with whatever project you have planned for your Saturday.
