Wandering around this year’s Sculpture by the Sea at Bondi (Sydney) Australia we were delighted to see a work displaying the unmistakeable talent of our friend, glass artist Sallie Portnoy. Its title is nascentia blades of grass.
Before we ate we were all shepherded into Sallie’s studio where each of us was given a partly baked clay plate and told to decorate it prior to it being put in the kiln. Des held back – “I’m not an artist” – and said he’d just watch, but we persuaded him to have a go. He did, with a result that impressed the gathering and surprised Des.
Sadly, we don’t have the plate, because it broke on the way to the kiln.
But Des has the memory of being artistically creative. He likes that – #notjustanobserver.
There’s an artist in each of us. How have you explored your creativity lately?
