My life has been full of creative pursuits. It wasn’t until I was almost 30 that I finally settled on creating creatures and found a way to support my craft habit. Creating to me is like drinking water– it is not just something I like to do– but MUST do. To keep my creative mind refreshed it is important to learn new skills. I’ve been wanting to learn how to sculpt for many years and I finally got the chance to hand build a faerie house this past week with the help of my friend, Cindy Best, at Little Bear Pottery.
We had given my youngest son a clay session with Cindy for his birthday instead of toys he would eventually break or outgrow and it was such a great experience for him. Watching him throw a pot on the wheel gave my urge to sculpt a little push! Finally I just made time to do it and I can’t wait to create another! I’ll post another photo after it has been fired and glazed.
How do you keep your creative juices flowing and fresh?
