  1. Initially I wanted to post quite another QOTW today, but after reading a post of our colleague Antoinette Badenhorst in the "Gustavo Perez" topic, I changed my mind. Questions like: "is every possible shape already invented?" "Am I a copycat if I do similar forms than X, W or Z?", "shall I refrain from doing works when one could confuse them with other ceramists work?" etc. are significant for us. Take, for example, the pieces of said Gustavo Perez, and in comparison the ones of our South African colleague Andile Dyalvane. Is one copying the other? In my eyes: no, because Andile's pieces have something that makes them especially Andile-like. Know what I mean? What is your opinion? Are we copycats when our work is inspired by, or looks similar to, work of others? Have a happy and not too hot week everybody. Evelyne
