oldlady Posted July 28, 2013 Report Share Posted July 28, 2013 yesterday, i was in The Art Spot which is closing tomorrow. Polly Beach is moving to St. Augustine, Fl and will re-open there. the tiny old building was filled with beautiful things as well as being a small supply house. i was lucky enough to get a piece of martha grover's pottery. as i looked at all the wonderful pots and art on the shelves i could see things i would like to say that i had made. today, marcia selsor has a post about a technique i never came across before. though marcia's work is nothing like anything i have ever seen, her post made me remember the Eeles family of potters in england whose work was so inspiring when i saw it in 2004. they used silver chloride and low fire commercial glazes to achieve a combination of hard stoneware and ephemeral, yet realistic decoration. looking at their website today, i noticed that they have strikingly changed their work and i would never have associated this new stuff with the pieces i have. some retrospective in the future will confuse viewers as to the origins of a particular piece. we are all influenced by the world around us and by the work we see and admire. i am always seeking inspiration and wonder what your recent source has been?
