What do you do when you first walk into the studio? Do you have a ritual that brings your mind into focus? For me it's putting on my apron. My apron frees me from the tidiness and control of order and allows me to shift into a deeper engagement with the materials at hand. Putting on my apron ignites the anticipation of getting my hands covered in mud or paint or grease or glue or whatever it is I'm working with in the moment. It is a garment whose function not only gives permission to make beautiful messy mistakes, but encourages them as a deeper way of being present in the world.
