Listen to the Clay

6 1/4 x 4 inches

When I opened the kiln this morning this sculpture said, listen to the clay. I have a hard time forgetting things. I try but sometimes the problems of life, the slights, or negative thoughts pop into my mind.

I need to keep moving forward; I need to listen to the clay. I need to chant, Listen to the Clay, Listen to the Clay. I unloaded this piece at 300 degrees to show you; the rest of the work is probably cool enough now to unload. Thanks for reading and for all your messages.


  1. Hello Linda:
    This is such an intriguing piece which we are delighted that you have shared.

    It is, we believe, so very important always to try to be positive about things in life so we urge you to continue to 'listen to the clay'.

  2. I hope Listen to the Clay goes on this fellow's birth certificate. Is there room under his cape for little creatures to hide from the rain?

    Thank you again for finding Mary Dewey. Her cats are much more whimsical than ours, twenty five years ago. Ours resembled the fellow in the craft article. Another byway in clay.

  3. Great advice, thanks for the reminder.

  4. I also need to find my own equivalent of 'listen to the clay'. I am not certain what that might be, but do know I need to stay more firmly in the here and now.
    And I love this sculpture. Thank you.

  5. You most certainly did listen to the clay. This piece is very intuitive looking! Really great.

  6. What an interesting piece! It speaks to me of dogs and bunnies and the wonders of Nature.

  7. I think it is important to listen...find the gem hidden within.

  8. Hi Jane and Lance, thanks, yes positive is best to strive for.

    Hi Joanne, thanks, yes his or my Gary said he wondered if it was a he or she, on the birth certificate, There isn't a bit of space underneath due to the way I constructed this piece.

    I amazed myself at finding the artist you described, the internet is a wealth of information, glad I could help you out.

    Hi Lori, thanks, sometimes I need to remind myself. Ha.

    Hi Barbara, thanks, I just need to keep that phrase in my mind.

    Hi Ms. Sparrow, thanks, it is one of those pieces that you can't quite put a label on which is why I like it. Ha.

    Hi Dee, thanks, oh yes the gem hidden within, that's the ticket.


I love suggestions, questions, critiques, thanks for your comment
