Qotw: • What Are The Ions Of Creativity?

24 November 2015 - 11:53 AM

Reading Robin Hopper's biographical book "A Lifetime of Works, Ideas and Teachings" I came upon a page filled with "Ions of Creativity".


Robin writes: " They continue to start-jump my mind and lead me into the development of new ideas, or the redevelopment of old ones. At times when the brain seems constipated, one or the other of these words can usually be counted on as a purgative to stimulate a flow of thought".


Here are five of his 32 Ions: Observation / Desperation / Determination / Passion / Motivation


What are your "Ions of Creativity"?



Qotw: Does Your Work Have A Feminine Or A Masculine Look?

17 November 2015 - 02:27 PM

Ha! That's a hard nut to crack, isn't it?!


The background to this crazy question is: Somebody told me that one of my tripod pairs, the one in the 2013 Potters Council calendar, look like man and wife. I asked what he meant and he said: "well the legs on the left vessel are masculine legs, and the legs on the right vessel look feminine. :blink:


I never thought in terms of masculine and feminine looking at my tripods, but maybe YOU did?


In which category would you put your own pieces: rather a masculine shape? Or a feminine look?


Looking forward to your struggles ;)


Have a wonderful week everybody!



Qotw: Do You Get Pottery Utensils As Gifts?

10 November 2015 - 06:00 AM

Since today is my Birthday and I just got a gift voucher from my dear husband for my favorite supply store, this week's question is easy:


Do you get pottery utensils like vouchers, tools, clay, workshop vouchers etc. as gifts/presents for your Birthday, mothers day, fathers day, Christmas, Saint's day (you name it)?


If somebody askes what do you wish for your Birthday etc., are your wishes related to your being a potter?


Maybe you have story for us about a special "pottery" gift you got?





Qotw: How Do You Stay Creative

03 November 2015 - 11:37 AM

When you have finished a piece and want to start something new, do you experience a certain "awwww, what should I do next?"


Are you bubbling over with ideas, have a thousand notebooks with drawings in it, drawings on every wall maybe of future projects etc.....  or are you sitting on your chair, chewing your fingernails, asking yourselve (... see above)?


Do you have some good ideas for us how to stay creative?
