That would be me … especially at this time of the year!
Don’t know why we use a knat in this allegory though. I looked up ‘knat’ and the lowly mosquitoe is considered a knat and from what I can remember (it has been a whole three months since they’ve been plaguing us) — they are very focussed. Doubly true when you are trying to get to sleep.
But, back to the subject at hand. That would be my short attention span! A couple of days ago I was putting together the package for the entry into the cup show, and while I was at that I had to go through some old pictures of work I’ve done before … in the midst of that were some shots of pots that made me wonder how come I stopped make them in the first place. That’s where that short attention span comes in. It seems I always have to try something new … not something that’s just a minor change from what I’ve been doing before, but a total change in clay, glazes, techniques, etc. That’s why when you come to see my work it looks like a psycho potter got loose in my showroom!
And, that’s just teapots, there are about 500 other pictures! If I show you platters and bowls … my head will spin …
So, what’s my New Year’s resolution? I’m going to do more … maybe even throw in some crazy to go with the psycho. Why not? And, maybe some non-functional. Who knows?
Hope you’re having a great day!
