Finally after 15 years I put a new star on this little Christmas tree I made way, way back in grade school. This may be the oldest object I still own that I handmade and it represents a continuous thread in my life: the love of doing, making, creating. The three unfinished objects represent another thread: the impulse to experiment. In this case the material is air-drying clay. Hands-on learning drives me. What are the threads that drive your life?
