As the work progresses mixed feelings of satisfaction and stress emerge. One by one the pieces of the puzzle start matching and as I move into larger rings there is an element of wonder and a sense of achievement. Objects of unfamiliar big scale start filling up the small studio and I find myself surrounded by these remarkable tubular vessels. They are all individual with their personal form, texture and colour though they are part of the same story; they need to talk to each other. Their imperfections should be complimentary, and when the day comes to meet each other it should feel as they were meant to be together. But it's a long way to Ithaka and a million things can go wrong. As they transform from mud to stone there are temptations and dangers and these clay characters have such volatile personalities.
Iacta alea est.
Since the journey has started, there is no way back. I should hope the journey
is long and full of adventures and experiences and this kind of wealth is what
I should be hoping for. The wise words of Kavafis will keep me company.
