Its one of those slow start mornings for me... I just got the kids off to school and I am contemplating working in my studio or packing for ZNE (I leave on Wednesday)
My mind is a little shut off and disheveled after my day of travel down to San Diego with Kelly to try out the marvels of bronze clay (not so sure if I am a fan or not, I would need to spend more time with it to decide) Nancy Johnson was a kind and generous instructor and all the lady's in the class were a delight
Puccini's Muse by Lynne PerrellaI. I was very happy when I received this stamp as I adore working with Asian imagery and instinctive knew just what I would do! I went right to the corner of my studio that house family mementos and snatched up two pill boxes that were my great grandmother that she had written on. I also incorporated pages from her Japanese to English dictionary. This piece was strongly influenced by the amazing colors on the spools of silk thread that I combined with vintage buttons and thread castoffs... you may be interested to know that I drilled many holes into the lid of the box and sewed all the elements down with thread and wire and no glue was used in this piece. ~ happy creating! I am off to work in my studio now!
‘Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things. And the reason they were able to do that was that they’ve had more experiences than other people.’ — Steve Jobs
