I Hear You

I hear you calling,
The mud and the clay
Fresh on your hands
As you take hold of mine,
Showing me the past,
Leading me to my destiny.

About Suzanne Gunter McClendon

I am a South Carolina native now living on the Texas Gulf Coast. I have been married to David for just over 33 years. We have 4 surviving adult children and two children-in-law. At this point in our lives, we are adjusting to an refilling nest. I enjoy reading, writing, photography, digital art, fiber arts, and much, much more.

    Sounds like you’ve become smitten! 😀

    You know, you could check out local craft shops, ceramics shops, things like that, to see if they will let you rent some space in their kilns or add one of your creations to a batch they’re firing. There may be a local ceramics or pottery group you can join, too, who can put you in touch with more resources.

    This is so exciting!

    Blessings!

    • Smitten I is. haha

      I’ve checked to see what is available here in our county. NADA, not even at the fine arts department of the junior college. Fort Bend & Harris Counties (two of the counties housing the city of Houston) have these things, but not our county. Houston is about 60 miles from here and they have absolutely everything. I will have to see if Hobby Lobby (about 30 miles or so from here) has a kiln. Maybe they do and that would be great. 🙂 Thanks for the suggestions!

      Thanks for being excited along with me and for your encouragement. Have a blessed day. 🙂
