Creativity

I love creative people. They are inspiring to me. I look up creative people on you tube and Ted talk. I am interested in what they have to say. I have tried different things in my life. I took a pottery class and and made a few beautiful heavy lopsided bowls. A few fortunate love ones got them as a Christmas gift. One year, everyone received a handmade scarf or cap for Christmas. Stunning.  I had my own business Khaki & Moss where I made cute bags and also bought other people’s products and put my label on it. It was creative but not exactly 100% my own artwork.

I have friends like Wendy Cettina who create their own beautiful clothing. Alyssa Truckenbrod can make a bar of soap.  Elizabeth (I call her Beth) Harbaugh can walk into a room, rearrange, simplify and make it a work of art. Veronique of OceanRock Design can create a beautiful bag out of vintage World War 2 material.

All very inspiring, I am not sure where this is going but I know creativity is linked to my happiness. I have decided that I can clean, shine my kitchen sink and put out a bar of handmade soap right next to a lopsided bowl. That is CREATIVITY for me. Simple, Easy and Beautiful!

  1. Hi Mary, Thanks for the mention in your post. Have you ever heard of the term Wabi Sabi? It’s an aesthetic term the Japanese used to describe the irregularities or imperfections inherent in their pottery. They actually value these irregularities.  In fact the term Wabi Sabi can very loosely be translated to the beauty in imperfection!!  How about that:)! Someday I hope to see one of your handmade bowls!!!
