Today our class are supposed to be in the Saatchi gallery in London. Last night, I was checking their website just in case I might feel better and be able to go, and then realized that all exhibitions are closed today. So I rang Tony who told me that there are only four students were interested. I asked him to ring a lecturer and I rang two, and asked one of them to ring the fourth. The lecturer couldn't be reached, but Tony left a message. So, I guess it was cancelled. Believe it or not, this type of thing is not surprising to me or the other students. Artists are not necessarily equipped with organizing skills, even if they are in teaching positions.
I am reading a wonderful book, The mind in the cave, by David Lewis-Williams. I picked it as my essay material, but it is so entertaining. It is not easy to write something complex and abstract for non-exert readers, but he does it brilliantly. If you enjoyed Ice Age Art exhibition at the British Museum, I highly recommend it.
Mike has thrown more bowls for the lovely lady in U.S.A. He is taking a great care on each bowl. They look good.
I have not gone to the studio for a week. Jane told me it is still like a battlefield. I have a couple of things to get fired as they are too large for our own kiln, but I don't want to leave them in a frantic place, so I will wait.
A week ago, I left some test pieces to be fired. I haven't seen them yet.
|A test piece with a face|
|This part is actual testing part!|
And these two are a test piece for an idea and colours.
|Miranda's curse and Peter|
|Millet sprays as ear decoration.|
Today Pearl had great joy with a packet of Japanese snacks my mother sent me.
|Every crumb I can find is mine!|
