Holding Everything Slowly

Its International Mud Day on June 29th. Holding a handful of mud connects me to so much more than just my own making, or living. Tiny elements of plants, rocks and creatures, possibly thousands of years old. A good way to consider Slow Making.

Slow in no time

Slow Making continues but the making seems to be done in very limited time between other demands and expectations.

Make the making take more time: so the demands become part of the made form.

Bark baskets fit this category, the bark comes from a tree about 3 or 4 years old. After stripping the bark, soaking it for several weeks the basket takes about 1 hour to make.
