You may have noticed that I've been a bit absent lately. In part it's because I have had no 'words' but also because I've been getting my 'clay on' at Whistle Stop Clay Works. I just finished a six week class with my instructor Heloise and have had so much fun. Those who warned me that it was addictive were right. I've signed up for an additional six weeks of studio time so I can continue creating.
I love that exploring a new medium opens you up and exposes you to new possibilities . . . . .
. . . . . and it's the perfect tonic for the winter time blues.
Last year I felt as though my creativity had stagnated so I thought trying a new medium might get the creative juices flowing again. I decided to dip my toes into the world of clay and recently started a six week pottery class to learn some of the basics. With two lessons under my belt I am still trying to figuring it all out but am having so much fun in the process. There's something deliciously tactile about working with clay and I'm excited to see how my love of texture transfers into this new medium.
