Old rusted metal and Clay

Sounds like a great combination to me! I went to an old building to take few treasures and I found some big rusted nails, probably used to hold something, when I saw them I immediately imagined how they will look with a colorful flower on the top, smooth and vibrant in color in contrast. 
I started working on the first design as soon as got back to the studio
Collecting wild flowers and browsing my archives also helped me to get inspired and this is what I'm making, it is still very raw but soon the flowers will be fired-hopefully tomorrow.

Making a simple life

What is living a simple life? you might think it is about minimizing material possessions, I think is living with a clear mind no matter how many "things" you have accumulated. Of course having less clutter and less things to put your energy on simplifies your life - at least for some.

I cleaned my studio, before moving in, I took all seconds, broken, unfinished and unwanted to the trash but what really made a change was to clean out my mind of ideas I couldn't start or finish, sound easy doesn't it? not for an artist who is constantly creating, but in order to bring quality and better results I'm focusing in very few things. Yes, there are still few options since I won't put all my eggs in one basket.
