This is my bright-eyed babe. She doesn't always like being in the studio because it means all my attention is not on her, but I think she's coming around to it. If you ever need a reminder to work and make with endless curiosity, observe a baby. She is always reminding me to pause. Often pausing means meeting her needs. But more and more I pause to watch how easily she's fascinated by the movement of her hands or our reflects in the mirror. She is so free. Completely dependent but free.
I look forward to her first moments of creativity. Her curiosity of the materials of the earth. I look forward to teaching her how important it is to interact with dirt and clay and to make. And that getting dirty in the process is a good thing.
