What was your inspiration?
Torchfired class project started it and metalsmith class ended it- I think every class I take gives me new insight though sometimes it all just goes out of my head- I find something I was working on and consider what I was doing and if I remember then I attempt to finish it if not I figure out something else to do with it or I put it back where I found it and move on-
What are you most proud of?
I really like this piece-and a lot of times I dont really like what I make- so its cool to really like something I have finished..
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Use your imagination and make each piece your own- never give up on yourself or the world even though at times it feels like its aganist you- sometimes we go through bad times so that we can enjoy the good times and no matter how many times you drop your clay or you loose your glasses or the buzzer on the dryer goes off- continue to strive to make things which may or may not make you happy but will give you rewards in the end- :) happy monday right? :)
