Thanks for popping in. Friday’s blog a private peek, right? Well, then let’s venture into the wacky world of potty pottery again. That magic place, where I come alive.
You know I am happiest when I’m doing pottery, right? Anything. Coil work, slab work, wheel work. I love it, eat it, breath it. You know I do. It’s my passion. It makes my heart sing. I am no expert, in fact I am really at the start of my pottery journey – which is perhaps why it is so exciting. It’s that blank canvas, that vast expanse of things yet to be discovered. Those YETS that really turn me on.
It’s an addiction, and I can’t get enough of it.
Do you watch the throwdown? I Love the presenters this season. And I have a particular soft spot for Keith Brymer-Jones, the boss. He – like me – cries for good things, like when people come alive with creativity. I do the same thing. I cannot explain why it comes over me, but I see it in him too. I nearly caught myself this morning, when I was praising Lisa. She is so blimming clever, and so modest too. Suddenly I well up. You can’t pretend it, and you can’t control it. I guess it’s when your passion and your job are one and the same thing, and you see talent, raw talent. There is no separation between the two – work and art. So all your love and emotions are attached to your work.
I remember bumping into Keith Brymer-Jones once at Top Drawer, the Stationery and Gift exhibition in London. Of course, I knew him and he didn’t know me. But we smiled at each other, and there was a connection. I like to think so anyway!
Then today, I found this video. And now I understand why I love this bloke. Apart from being a super talented creative, he clearly doesn’t take himself too seriously. And I find that very refreshing. No ego.
My favourite song to sing too!!!
Check him out dressed up at Adele! Google Adele Brymer Jones…Funny man.
In fact, this afternoon, it being Friday and all, I think I may just call it a day and go wedge a little clay. (hey! That rhymes!!) Still trying to throw a tall vase. Not easy. But I’m getting loads of flowers pots!!
Perseverance, girl, perseverance.
What’s your passion? Tell us xx
