I had no computer for more than a month and had no energy to try and get here with my blackberry. But wow, I missed a lot!

People. Please read my OP. My question was: "why is there no comments in the gallery."

Not: Why do you guys on your high horses think that every comment has to be a critique?

What about a simple 'I love your glaze, shape, ... (what ever you like about the piece) And if you think that the piece is dog shite, do not enlarge the image ... lol

Honestly. Seriously. this is a laugh. (Ok, I have to admit that I am pooped. I have orders coming out of my ears after a very good Designer Week with lots of local and International orders and have been working a 7 day week since the beginning of January except for the week that I was crawling around on my hands and knees after a very bad back complaint that got me in ER and Morphine and what not .)

You guys are fighting about the merits of getting down that high horse to comment on some newbie's work. You were once (many moons ago) a newbie. But you know what? sometimes encouragement is good. Stop being arses and think that you are to high and mighty to acknowledge some idiot that is trying to dare play with clay. I mean, how dare they?

Well, that is how a lot of you are coming across.

I know where I am in ceramics. But then I am lucky enough to share studio space with other potters and have contact with more that live in my city. Peers that I idolise and look up to. and if they buy my work for their private collections, that says enough for me.

What I am trying to say is this. A lot of you are spending a lot of time on this site. Use some of that time constructively in being a little bit more human and give. Some old guy gave you encouragement years and eons ago. Pass it forward!

Now I am off to look at the gallery and yes, I will comment on stuff that I like.

Edited to add: I have a major fail on visiting the gallery ... Could only look at a couple of images. the rest just refuse to open. Ugh.

Hi there couldnt agree more! T

That was incredibly right on, diana!

"Stendhal syndrome, Stendhal's syndrome, hyperkulturemia, or Florence syndrome is a psychosomatic illness that causes rapid heartbeat, dizziness, fainting, confusion and even hallucinations when an individual is exposed to art, usually when the art is particularly beautiful or a large amount of art is in a single place. The term can also be used to describe a similar reaction to a surfeit of choice in other circumstances, e.g. when confronted with immense beauty in the natural world."

Ok, now I understand the feeling I had when I visited Florance. thank you Lucille Oka.

Why post the reference to it, though?

Frederik I'm with you on this one. If no one ever comments how the hell do we develop?
