Glen Lake
Fall 2007

There are so many obstacles out there to overcome. Creating this blog has been quite a challenge for me. I changed one of the settings which enabled Hindi as the primary language. It took me a while to figure out what was going on with the blog. In addition to this, my computer was not working for the past week and I needed to use another computer which did not recognize the Hindi language when I was trying to access the blog. When I was able to get back on my computer, I was able to recognize what was going on and disabled the Hindi setting. In other words, I'm back.

Last week, I was in Glen Arbor in Michigan relaxing, playing and enjoying Glen Lake and Lake Michigan. Teaching started yesterday and I hope to hold on to the serene state one can achieve when Kayaking at dusk on a quite lake. I drove into Leeland one day and visited the Leeland Library. The big find was a first edition book, The Potter's Challenge by Bernard Leach. This exceptional book is full of such great examples of fine clay work. I highly recommend anyone interested in clay work to read this book.

Jeanne finally convinced me to begin blogging in order to document art and ideas. So, here we are setting up the template to begin.
Thanks Jeanne for your knowledge and of course for the tea.

It seemed appropriate to choose these images for the opening of this blog page as Jeanne invited me to participate in a show titled the Buddha Project at Cleveland State University. The hand built installation was created in 2004 using porcelain clay fired in an electric kiln to cone 10. The patterns were created using a wax resist technique on the glazes.
