Hey Guys. It’s been a seriously weird week with a holiday, snow day and surprise teacher inservice, so this is my first chance to pop in and say hello! At the Saturday calligraphy workshop a few weeks ago, I got talking with one of the students about flexing creative muscles away from the confines of my laptop. I think it’s a really important thing to do, and time being creative away from one’s computer screen actually does make you a better artist, designer or creative whatever at the end of the day. That conversation was the last little push I needed to sign of for a ceramics class I’ve had my eye on for about a month. Last Saturday was my first session and I’ve been waiting all week to sink my paws into some clay! I’ve been pinning inspiration like a mad woman, and it’s just too lovely not to share with you!

Right now I’m all about perfectly imperfect shapes, subtle colors and textures, and maybe even a touch of gold. I’ll share my work with you if I make anything cool! Have a nice weekend!

      I knowww! The class I’m taking is just at the community center and they don’t have a great selection of glazes. I’m wondering if I brought my own gold foil (which of course I already have) if it would work under a final coat of clear glaze. I’m definitely going to try!

    Thanks so much for sharing your inspiration. I’m not generally an “imperfect shape” sort of person; I love symmetry. But this last piece is just so adorable. I really quite like it!

      Kate- I am generally a crazy perfectionist and prefer perfect symmetry, but I think with ceramics you have to let go of that a bit. It is SO hard to create pieces that are perfectly symmetrical, perfectly centered, perfectly consistent in thickness. I think it’s best to embrace the more organic looking handmade imperfections that inevitable come when making things with your hands, especially for a beginner!

      Sometimes it’s so hard to put down the computer and just get busy with your hands! I spend a lot of time on my computer as a tool for communicating with clients and planning, but it definitely gets in my way sometimes when it comes to the actual hands-on DOING! Maybe I should designate one night a week for creating with my hands, far far away from the computer screen!
