We are celebrating our first 10 residentS. Ten is a significant number to this project with a commitment to 100 residents over 10 years. They are the beginning of an extended Family.
"A transformative and nourishing three weeks of uninterrupted studio time, a gift that I will hold onto, come back to when I am feeling the fatigue of navigating a studio practice amongst the obligations of everyday life."
"Working with clay provided me a kind of meditative motion. The focus it takes to work on the wheel has an undeniable kinship to the focus of poem making. With both you have to get into a zone, you snap out of it and the pot falls, the poem disappears."
"I felt lucky for the great weather, frustrated and challenged working with a new type of clay, and finally a sense of grace, for all the work I accomplished in a little more than a month."
"It was also the first time in many years I had been alone with a studio only focus to reacquaint myself with my pace and follow threads that would became a weaving together of images and ideas within."
