Have you ever watched the show 'Til Death? It's hilarious! During my recent bout with illness, I couldn't get off the couch and it was just the medicine I needed. In one episode the long-married couple's daughter decides she's going to major in ceramics studies at college. Her parents are horrified! I couldn't stop laughing, but I must admit I wish I knew myself that well when I was young. If you've been reading my blog for a while you know I am obsessed with pottery. I love the shapes, the textures, the finishes and I love arranging it like sculpture. I keep thinking I'd like to take a pottery class, but I must admit I'm too lazy for that. I'd love to own a pottery store, where I could arrange and dust the pottery all day long. Ahh.
My latest obsession is to search for unloved, abandoned pieces at the Goodwill and give them a new life by painting them in updated colors. I am particularly in love with neon colors! I love the look of spray painted vases, but spray painting is a lot harder than it looks. It takes a lot of patience and I'm not very good at it. So I am always on the look out for a vase with a porous surface so I can paint it with a brush. And I love simple shapes.
Here's my latest transformation.
