It's been a while...

Oh dear, it's been such a long time since I have updated my blog, but worse - it's been even longer since I have done anything remotely creative. I seem to have lost my enthusiasm somewhere. And my confidence. And my motivation. I am, however, enjoying reading quite a bit at the moment, so maybe I am simply recharging my creative batteries? After all, things were pretty hectic at the end of last year.

I'm looking forward to the warmer weather. It's not very inspiring to be cramped up in my kitchen, so I'm looking forward to being able to get back out in my studio, but it's too cold at the moment. And I really want to learn to throw this year. So maybe all of my goals for various shows will have to go out of the window. I want to make whatever my soul desires instead of saleable items, and take time to learn and grow.

I haven't renewed my membership for the FPAA yet, and I still haven't decided if I really want to. Just the thought of all the snobbery and pretence drains me.

I am enjoying being at class with Sophie though. I don't make anything myself when I go because I am there to support Sophie, but it's lovely to be with such creative people who are normal and down to earth. Sophie has a real natural talent, and has really progressed in such a short space of time. Here is one of her latest pieces:

I can't wait to see it glazed!

I hope to be able to post again soon, maybe with pictures of my own creations?
