To Create




A watercolor artist creates in two dimensions...a photographer....as best we try...also works in two dimensions even though we often attempt to simulate a third.

But a potter can take a mound of mud and translate a three dimensional concept in his mind to the spinning potter's wheel and mold a creation you can hold. Unlike photographs or paintings...the added sense of touch comes into play with the potter. It takes a special mind to be able to translate a concept into reality in three dimensions....I envy potters.

Have a Great Saturday

I love to watch potters create. I've tried it a couple of times but I basically ended up with a lump of clay!
Wonderful detail in your pictures.

Dawn Treader yes it must be a very messy artistic expression. My wife would kick me out of the house!

Thanks Shabbygirl...I was trying to get up close so the angles were a bit different than a regular shot.
