Back in the studio

Yay, I am sooooooo happy to be back in the studio, letting the clay direct itself with only a little bit of gentle motivation from my hands.
I am working on a new series called "Yoga People".
These are two of my favorite poses. Eagle pose and standing bow pose.
I am hoping to do a whole series of these wall hanging sculptures.
I have enjoyed yoga off and on for the last few years but only recently have I "kicked it up a notch" and joined a Bikram Yoga studio. Hot Yoga is the hardest physical work I have ever done in my life but it has resulted in undisputable changes in my body. Whoo hoo! It also helps a great deal in alleviating my severe depression.
I've been hearing whispers on the wind that yoga has been getting some bad press lately. RUBBISH I say! The only people I have known to knock it are those that have never tried it. And finally, yoga is not a religion and has no effect on my own personal religious beliefs....I feel that there is still a lot of ignorance that surrounds this practice.

Anyhow, Yay for clay and Yay for feeling good about one's self.

Very cool! I tried yoga in the 70s and felt really great until I got pregnant... that tummy bump got in the way! Now I can't keep my balance... and our hardwood floors are really hard!

I've never done yoga, but I figure cello is sort of my substitute for yoga...if that makes any sense! Anyhow, the notion of wall hanging sculpures is so cool, and your people in poses are very well done! They look like dancers to me.
