Finished Work

Thoughts

 We may have to disagree that the lines between good art objects and bad are so clear, but it seems that the activity of art is seldom wrong. There isn’t good creativity and bad creativity, though we may judge the outcomes in those terms, or we may see it directed in questionable ways.
I am increasingly starting to wonder whether it is actually more detrimental to show or sell work I am not that excited about, than not to exhibit at all.
I haven’t been able to produce quantity for a few months now and I’m feeling the deflation of self worth.

The Rest

So there you have it. Most of the great clay blog posts from the past month. I’ll stay busy until next month just watching and taking notes from all the video. Thanks to all the clay bloggers for sharing. If you feel that something is missing let me know. Thanks for reading!
