My stay here in Lismore is coming to an end. But– the end is the beginning of my ten day vacation to Perth after uni stuff finishes πŸ™‚ I will be sad to leave my friends here, but I think I am getting a bit homesick these days. It is my first time overseas, and so far I think I’ve handled it well and enjoyed it. I am only just barely starting to truly enjoy my time here, now that I live in a nice clean place with friendly roommates and neighbors. By the time the day comes for me to leave here, I won’t want to. I know I won’t. But there are people and things I am missing back home… I think this is the longest time I’ve spent not seeing my family. I’ve made good friends here and it almost feels like a family of sorts, but at the same time, I miss the people who put up with me for the last 22 years of my life πŸ™‚

For the remaining time here in Oz, I plan to pack it as full of adventure and good times as I can. Celebrating a friend’s birthday tentatively tomorrow– if not that, I will go out with my new friends to a club or something. I want to go to a few more waterfalls… and then my best friend here is hosting an end of school party at her place a week before I leave. Those are just the things already on the calendar… random fun times seem to happen a lot, too πŸ™‚

 

As far as studio stuff goes, it’s kind of finished for the time being. I can’t make anything new because everything needs to be fired in time for critique– so I am in the process of bisquing and glazing things. Then the trick will be figuring out how to sell all of the work I can’t take with me. Anyway, here is a pair of female figure sake cups that I made intentionally for the wood firing (which didn’t happen). Instead, I will put a clear glaze on them and fire them in oxidation.
