It's been a while.
I haven't done any clay work because we're in the throes* of all-consuming kitchen renovation planning. Ugh!
*The other day I saw that someone wrote 'throws'. Maybe that's right after all.
Decisions, decisions. My head is spinning with cabinet fronts, appliance specs, electrical wiring layouts, blueprints, estimates, etc.
We have spent 3 days, so far looking at humongous slabs of granite, soapstone, marble. How do you balance beauty and practicality?
Like the Mud Lady in the mop ad, I stuck to a beautifully undulating-patterned, buttery sea of slab of marble. Going back to look at my kitchen brought me back down to reality and I realized it was infatuation, not a marriage. I'd still like to live with that slab of rock in my house. It was beautiful. But soapstone it will be for the countertops.
So be warned, fair reader, I will probably subject you to the agony and the ecstasy of renovation.
