Path and Inspiration I work in a community studio with other Artists and Potters. The mutual creative support discussing and sharing ideas and skills is great. This helps me out of isolation, creates a wider context, broadening my development and gets my work out into public.
Process and Practice I sometimes draw upon past Printmaking studies and I try transferring those skills across by printing onto clay using lino plates and by using underglaze as ink. Im excited if I'm learning a new technique or other. This is both challenging and stimulating. I wonder a lot about the sources of my ideas and by tapping into my feelings they often are revealed in the final piece. I imagine they are my unconscious feelings breaking through but that's another story.
