I finished unpacking and reassembling my studio this past week. After I’ve had a break from the studio, I’m raring to get back to the slabs of clay and start creating. I’ve got some custom orders to complete to get me started. Time away often inspires new ideas and shape variations to conquer. Some new texture rollers arrived in the mail. Let the fun begin!
The public feedback I received from the art show in Huntsville was positive and up-lifting. Attendees entering my booth mouthed the words I often use to describe my pottery: “happy”, “colorful”, “whimsical”, and “useful” were some of the words I heard. An artist couldn’t ask for any better commentary than that! My pottery creations successfully reflect and communicate the fun I experience making each one.
Creativity is contagious. One of the best parts of participating in a show is experiencing the vast amount of creativity other artists bring to their own art. It is inspiring. I love creating with clay and am lucky to have this wonderful outlet for self-expression. I’ve heard people say, I can’t make art, I’m not creative. That’s false. Creativity can be conveyed in all sorts of ways besides making art. Think about the ways you express yourself -- your own personal creativity factors into that.
