Why did they paint it Turd Brown?

Today when I came home, I found the outside of my apt painted over in a dark turd brown. It looks dark and awful. I was not pleased..especially since all my plants on the balcony were re-arranged. It shows that people came through my apartment to do this..they probably scared the kitties. I hate it when people come in my apartment without informing me. Hell, I hope they got a hernia when they tried to move my pottery wheel. That thing is so heavy.

I got 2 pieces almost fully finished today. I turned 3 slabs into another female form sculpture. The piece looks very fluid. The original idea had been to make something that represents the whispy steam that comes off of a cup of tea. This came from a conversation with one of my instructors over the concept of rituals - with warm tea being a calming ritual for me.
The second piece was another "shrine" piece. Its a patchwork house form that looks somewhat like a coffin. Not gonna put a heart in this one..I'm thinking a cucumber this time.

As I was working, a classmate wandered by and remarked "damn..you sure are productive"..and I'm thinking "damn, what do you all do with your time? You have nothing to show for a full semester". These people confuse me.

As a side note, I'm the headache queen again. I seem to get a headache about ever 2 days now. The frequency is increasing..although the overall pain level is much less than the headaches I used to get when I worked on a computer all day.

Hmmm....first visit to your blog...seems you cover a lot of ground here and I like that...do you think your instructor would get the message if you put her image in one of the coffins....just kidding. I have not worked with clay for years but loved it when I was doing it regularly. Would love to see more of the work you like to do. Will keep watching your blog...

These unproductive people are probably watching to much TV. Television is turning all of us lazy.

You might want to go to the doctor about those headaches, it's probably nothing but better safe than sorry.

By the way, you have gorgeous eyes
