Mother in law blue
Connie I couldn't even drag myself into the studio today to make mugs. It is -27 out there and I'm fighting off a funk. I never liked making vases. Every vase I make I sit back and think to myself that would make a nice jug and pull a lip and put a handle on. Today I scurried off to Curry's Art Supplies to buy some colours. I bought red, blue and yella! I have wasted so much time in the past three days I have been feeling guilty and thought of the old adage if you can't sell your pots glaze em blue and if you still can't sell em then salt the suckers. My old buddy on Clayart Mel calls his blue glaze Mother in law blue cause she loved everything he made and especially in that blue glaze. Damn I must be in a funk cause I've never found a blue glaze that I particularly liked and there I was this afternoon drawing vases and putting blue finger wipes on them. Maybe blue shino is in my future! Spring come quickly and save me from my mind!
One reason that people have artist’s block is that they do not respect the law of dormancy in nature. Trees don’t produce fruit all year long, constantly. They have a point where they go dormant. And when you are in a dormant period creatively, if you can arrange your life to do the technical tasks that don’t take creativity, you are essentially preparing for the spring when it will all blossom again.
