Obsessed with circles at the moment,
what a lovely joybuzz to discover artist
and her gorgeous installations
of dirt cookies and steel.
(This joybuzz word...I think I made it up,
and I think I'll keep it for awhile.)
Boozer's Red Dirt Studio in Mt. Ranier, Maryland
has behind it a pit of red clay she accesses
to create sculptures emphasizing the natural
texture of the material as it dries and cracks.
Isn't this fascinating?

Smoky Horizon + Lavender Earth
Whether it nurtures the seed,
firmly supports a tree,
or becomes a muse
for a talented ceramicist,
isn't dirt lovely?
Peace to you right where you are.
