easier said than done






Sometimes it's very easy for us to say the things that we perceive as simple to do or that we can do much better at anything, than doing the work itself. Of course, nothing is impossible if we have the will to do it. But the question is, when will we get anything started?

The photos above are some works in progress and my first full attempt at working with ceramics. I love working with clay and I thought signing in a workshop will formally commence my journey with this natural and symbolic material. Sculpting terra cotta clay is very much harder than I thought. Aside from working with sweat in kneading the clay, firing or baking it also ignites endless anxiety as the outcome is actually indefinite for the first few attempts. I have much more respect now for ceramic artists.

I just hope my babies turn out pretty well.
