Heidi Loewen's studio full of color and light, 315 Johnson Street in Santa Fe.
I was sorting pictures from New Mexico this morning...there are more than 2,000 from last month's two week trip.
Only a few will ever see print but pictures help me recreate an experience in words, a different kind of art.
One of my favorite experiences was joining Heidi Loewen in her studio/gallery in Santa Fe. Denny and I spent a morning with her learning about making porcelain vessels.
That morning was more than just playing in clay; it was an exploration. Heidi's first rule for students is, "Speak kindly of your work." The idea was like turning on a light bulb of possibility; freedom to create without fear of failure.
A few of our raw vessels from that morning.
In another couple of months, Heidi will ship our glazed and finished pieces, with an invisible cargo of happy memories.
