I've been stuck for a while... pushing myself in a direction I thought was right but seems yet again was totally wrong. I thought I was on track but the doubts started to creep in, finding so many reasons not to be in the studio, or doing anything creative for that matter.
Determined to change my cycle, adamant that I wouldn't repeat it yet again I applied to do my MA ceramics. I have been offered a place and begin the next chapter of my journey this coming September.
For the first time ever I've felt the pages in my sketchbook a joy rather than a chore, daily pottering in the studio a must.
Part of the MA process is to keep a journal, pondering, revelations, whys & wherefores. A record of my work as I progress through the course and beyond. A daily scribble in my sketchbook is part of my daily routine now and I'm hoping a word or two written here will give those of you interested in my work an insight into the whirling cogs of a scattered mind.
Of course there is every possibility it will be nonsensical drivel.
