I've been thinking!
The prospect of being in an exhibition seemed like no big deal, till I actually was. Like a party goer with nothing to wear I suddenly feel like nothing I have is good enough! I need to make something special.
Its strange trying to make something special in pottery! It is usualloy so humble. Pottery will never be seen on "Australia's got Talent" or even make it on to the news. Does it even exist out there in real life. :doh: Not many things would exist if they were only allowed to if they were on telly. Although I once saw a show about how they molded the huge mouldings around sky scrapers windows in New York. (Which are terrocota by the way...... but I digress.) (Its was a pretty good show, but it was all about how messy it was. :doh: "That's not dirt" I kept saying to the telly, "That's clay!" anyway.... )
So I am making some special cups. And I am unleashing my drawing talent. (How's that for talent "The X factor" :Q )
For the last decade or so I have been limiting myself to working with one particular motif, "little waves", trying to do as much as I could with it. Looking for depth, and a suggestion of environment and atmosphere. But now I feel the need to draw! I will be drawing still lifes from around me. Nothing special. Just normal life. Just celebrating the moments of peace and thinking in a day!
