Inspiration Monday – December 28, 2009


Well I hope everyone had a peaceful Christmas, Hanukah or just a nice long relaxing weekend.

Last week I wrote about how my vacation in Greece in 2006 had crept into my recent work.   Well, exaggerated handles aren’t the only thing I found in those photos.  I found a few ewers like the one to the left.  Wow.

My favorite pot

______

I was floored.  I had no recollection of these pots with the whimsical spouts.  Yet there it was, discovered just months after I started making the form at the right.

This discovery puts me in awe of the creative process and the mind.  Nothing leaves you.  Every experience you have stays with you. It may not be filed for easy access.  Or it may be right under your nose.  But it is always there.
