I have not been very inspired lately; I've been mostly working on the boring things like taking pictures of product, writing about product, getting supplies to make product that the muse gave up I guess. The particular artist interviewed said when she felt stagnant she would stop being serious and just play. So today I did; I had a playdate with clay.
I recently had the privilege of taking a class from Leslie Blackford with about 30 other lucky people. During the class she encouraged us to try our hand at sculpture. Two things came out of my mind that day-a horse and a bird skull. I made a few of the bird skulls for pendants but never did much with the horse until today. Since today was supposed to be about play the horse seemed fitting. If you have ever watched horses in the field you will notice how they love to run, gambol and jump around-they love to play!
I think this little break was what I needed to get back in the saddle again and start rustling up a few new ideas. Thanks for visiting!
