I did not know her well... but her death still brings me sadness

years ago the woman who made these pillars died in a car accident
years before that I lived around the corner from her pottery studio
although I did not know her well... occasionally I would stop by uninvited
we would talk and play with clay

I made a series of clay fish that were intended as stepping stones for my father's garden
they were dried... then fired
I never glazed them
I never picked them up

although I do not have those fish
I still have those memories

RIP Hester Nelson
sorry that your life ended so soon
