CERAMICS- Hand building techniques as a matter of fact at the local college. I have been blessed, once again with a talent to create something useful! Yes, I just typed that out.... That everlasting debate about ART being useful...does it serve a purpose or does it just create an emotion?
Art is art, however you want to look at it, whether it's on your wall for decoration, you wear it for personal style, you say it in poetry, you photograph it, draw or paint it to capture a moment, you build it for architecture or carpentry...oh gosh, I could go on forever....Does not matter what the purpose, everything we do has a personal and unique attachment to it....soooo, in the end, does it really matter if it has a practical use? NAH! After all, we as humans do... tend to congregate and form friendships based on our unique individual tastes.... social and emotional.... art sets the mood! :)
So, once again, I did say that I am creating something useful.....in every aspect of the word!
Check out the ceramics gallery....my very first piece was the sunflower designed pinch pot which taught me a load of technique. The details are incredible....from carving and staining to under glazes and not to mention design and colour.
My fav creative pieces are the set of sushi dishes....the boat and the shark soya sauce dippers were so much fun to make.
I am taking the course again and already tried my challenging side with a birdhouse and hanging herb pot. I'll be sure to post the images once these pieces are completed.
Cheers and happy creating!
