I'm often inspired by nature...flowers, grass, seeds...
...and often, an image gets lodged in my brain until I take the time to make it.
I will find something I fall in love with, and it stays with me until I find a way to incorporate it into a piece of my work (like the pussy willows on the bowl on the left, below).
The strange thing is, once I've made the piece, it's out of my system and I rarely feel like making another - which is why so many of my pieces are one of a kind.
Quilts...need I say more?
I would love to hear what inspires you. Please feel free to leave a comment.
Oh, and I guess I should mention - this month at the Rural Creators' Collective, all my pottery is 10% off. There is also a draw to win one of my bud vases (with a gift certificate to the flower shop downstairs) at the end of the month. If you are local (ish) pop on in and check it out.
Also, you can come see me in person at the Carlisle Country Craft and Old-Fashioned Market Mercantile on August 23, and 24th, 2014 in Mountsberg, ON.
