In terms of art I find myself facing constant failure. As a subtle perfectionist this has been my nightmare yet I still pursue ceramics. I come to class everyday with the hope of that one perfect piece that has yet to come. The journey to this piece has been as thrilling as it is frustrating. The journey has taught me to accept failure as long as I tried and to never give up. Plus the teacher, Ms. Papuga, is an amazing, ceramics-producing, zen master.
