This is an exhibit featuring mothers that are also artists.
Spoon, Deb Durant
I am not in the studio going like gangbusters. Those days came to a screeching halt 7 + years ago when I had twins. With twins there is no fooling yourself that you will simply strap two kids to your back like a primate and keep on working in your studio. Seven years ago “mom” became my identity crisis.
When my kids were about three, if asked what mommy does they would draw a blank and maybe say “make dinner?” My husband would helpfully nudge them, “Mommy has a studio out back, she’s a mommy and a potter.” Thanks Dad. But really I was going through some kind of metamorphosis. On January 23, 2003 I became and will always be a mom. “Artist” is now my identity crisis.
