Having a helper is a joy.
Unloading the kiln is like Christmas day and is meant to be shared with others. On this particular day, friends from Miami came down with their kids to the Florida Keys. Curious, eager and helpful describes my friend ‘s daughter who could not wait to bring the newly fired pieces from the kiln to the table. We worked together as many of the shelves were filled by my latest pottery class at Artists in Paradise Gallery on Big Pine Key. Questions poured out of this 4 year old who wanted to know who made each piece, how they made it and if she could make one too.
The joy was mine on that day as I stayed present, alert and full of answers for my little helper. I did not want to be anywhere else!
