ClayByLaura was listed among The Top Pottery Blogs of 2016 according to Pottery Making Info this week. It always feels good to receive affirmation from peers. The clay world is comprised of a generous group of artists where sharing is the norm. In the age of electronic communication and the internet, the ability to communicate with fellow clay artists has exploded worldwide.
Reading the blogs of other clay artists is always helpful. Surrounding ourselves with like-minded thinkers can boost our own ideas and confirm our actions. It’s important to explore other ways of approaching a problem and listen to alternative ideas.
Writing this weekly post is a way for me to track what I’ve been making in my clay studio, explore new ideas, communicate with fellow artists AND most especially enlighten people who will use one of my clay pieces in their daily life. I think a peek into the process adds to the value of the art.
