Pot(Cha) Kutcha

That was fun!  Our little clay club got together at Allen Kradlak's awesome studio last night and
enjoyed some presentations from different members.. 20 images for 20 seconds....  It was really fun.  I did it, because for most of my life I've avoided doing stuff like this because the idea of public speaking sent me into a real panic, but... I think the more you do it the easier it gets, and it has for me... I almost am to the point where my heart isn't beating wildly out of my chest and I've completely forgotten how to speak.  But.... not quite.  Guess I better keep practicing.  Everyone did something different.  Mine was about going to Turkey last summer, and some recent work affected by the trip.
A real treat was to be in Allen's studio.  Large, warm, nicely lit, and completely dreamy.  I wonder what I might make if I escaped from my fishbowl... And.... the shelves of underglazes and glaze.   I can't even imagine how much fun it would be to play there....It was a great night.  Thank you Allen!!

Jenny,
Thank you, for the kind words. It was great to have so much talent visit the studio. Your presentation was wonderful, just like everything you do. I'm relieved to hear that everyone has stage fright. It always feels like i'm the only one. Maybe Todd and Stephanie will continue with future events.

Hey Allen!!! I thought you were supposed to present last night too??? Sometimes being scared is good for you, because you know you can survive!!!

allen, sometimes thinking about it is way scarier than actually doing it. I hope next time you will give it a try...
