What a fun Christmas morning I've had! I just snuggled down with a nice hot cup of coffee and some home made oatmeal raisin cookies and watched more than two hours of Jana making a beautiful Arabesque cane. I ordered the DVD as a Christmas present to myself (grin)... and it came in the mail yesterday.
Now keep in mind that I don't make very good canes (actually they're awful)... but Jana's video is so precise and explains things so well that I finally think I understand the process much better. After the holidays are all over and I have some peaceful time to clay, I'm actually going to attempt to make my own design of an Arabesque cane. Never thought I would say that, but yes... me making a cane... I think I can do it! Now, of course I don't expect it to be near as good as the master's, but I am at least not afraid to give it a try.
I really enjoyed this video, and feel like I got a lot out of it.
