Normally, waking up at 5 in the morning on a saturday, would be annoying and leaving me feeling stressed out or worried – nut no today, not at this time in my life.
I can’t sleep because I’m exited – and my head is exploding with ideas and I just have to get it out – so here I am, writing here, in the dark – husband fast asleep.
So whats on my mind?
Well – I went to see my mentor Thora yesterday to give her back some molds I had borrowed and to discuss the internship that I am starting on next week. I am like a sponge, just absorbing some of all the information Thora is giving me.
It feels a bit like for a person to hear a neuro surgeon talk -hahah.. so many words I don’t know the meaning of, and just trying to decipher what she is talking about – technical terms, strange names of materials, mixtures and glazes. Luckily Thora is used to teaching classes and having interns, so she is so patient and explains everything.
I can use some of the tools from my jesmonite tool collection, but the two techniques are so different that e.g. molds cannot be the same. For jesmonite I use silicone molds and for ceramics I need plaster molds.
The other tools I need is to smooth out ceramics, and shape it. So I need to get a hold of a lot of different smaller handheld tools like these:
So I am looking online to see what to chose, there are so many options, it’s hard to chose.
I decided to buy some more stuff from Scarva and a german site. Am exited and ready for this next chapter of my creative life.
