Breaking is Harder than fixing

I am presently working on my final year exhibition pieces, which are vessels representing urns. The urns are cracked and broken In places and ash is spilling.
I am looking at the fact that we as a society have lost the blueprint and what is supposed to be  progress is actually a loss of sensitivity to the fact that people are dying violently and most of them are our children. People are alive but not living, the home is not a sanctuary, but a morgue.
What I have discovered, is that it is not easy, after you work to learn to make something 'properly', to make it broken.
Should I make them smaller? Straighter?
Comments will really be appreciated right about now.

We have lift off!

The bisque firing was a total success! We are on point. Here are just some of the pieces. Next... glaze firing

2014!

I haven't blogged in a long time so I start by saying:
Happy 2014!
Now on to the news. The electrical in the studio is finally complete. Just gave the kiln a test to make sure all the elements were working and we have glowing red. Temp gauge was climbing so we will be doing our first bisque firing on Sunday. Can't wait!
Be blessed,
