I am having lots of new proyects in mind, at the moment I am making faux "delft blue" (typical Dutch) beads with a blue flower. It is strange fact that when you are born in a country, you don´t really appreciate your surroundings or culture, usually you plan your hollidays somewhere else more exotic/tropical etc etc. It is a shame that it needs several years out of your own country to miss the surroundings, habits, culture, people etc you didn´t really appreciated before. I have reached the point now where I am seeking inspiration in those lovely memories I have from my homecountry, tulips, delft blue, windmills etc etc.
When I have some more time, I would love to make a few mixed media paintings with clay of Dutch landscapes. However I still have quite some other proyects before that, my mum want me to "pimp" our mail box with clay mosaic and my husband casually "found" an old horrible plastic clock and he challenged me to make a clay one, using the mecanical parts of the old one. Sometimes I have a hard time understanding people who don´t have ideas, I would love to be able to "switch" mine off sometimes because I can´t keep us with myself.
Lately I have noticed on facebook and other pages that lots and lots of people are making the same vintage bronze items, which is a mayor reason for me do exactly the contrary and go my own way. How are you ever going to distinguish your work from others if it is exactly the same?
