While I certainly feel that my work for school is important, this piece just seems that much more important. Sure, there's a check attached to it (Yea!), but there's also the fact that this piece will be seen by perhaps hundreds of people everyday since it's going in the main lobby of the building. I will admit that I feel a little over my head on this one, not so much because I don't think I can pull it off, but because it is such a big, and to me, important job and I find myself worrying that things are going to go to hell again in the kiln, like they did a few weeks ago. I just need to relax and know that things will all work out just fine and it will be spectacular.
It's also nice when the art consultants keep talking about new projects that they would like to do with me :)
I will post pictures of the pieces as they are completed, along with the finished installation, but keep your fingers crossed for me that the kiln gods will be kind to me ;)
