Inspiration Abounds.....

while i was wandering thru our library yesterday -- i love the library!-- i found a book that i think will be full of wonderful inspiration. it is by one of my fav potters, robin hopper. it is called Making Marks, and while written mainly for ceramic artists, a quick perusal has peaked my attention. i will keep you posted on this one as i believe it will keep me going for a very long time, even using media other than ceramic.
i remember some years back going to an exhibit of hopper's pottery in peterborough's art museum . i was totally blown away, especially as i was immersed then in classes in ceramics at Sir Sanford Fleming College. now i work primarily in polymer clay, but the skills and techniques learned there have served me well. so i am hurrying thru the daily grind so that i can really get into this book.....
