For some unknown reason, the singing flowers in Disney’s Alice in Wonderland have been cavorting in my head for weeks! All of a sudden I will start to sing in my head, “Within that world of my own….”, or ” All in the golden afternoon…..”. Ay Caramba! I am usually out in the garden dead heading the iris or weeding the flower beds. Call me crazy, but there had to be a reason these songs kept coming into my head!
The flow of creativity has been stilted for a while, especially where clay/ceramics were involved. In my head, I kept seeing flowers with faces singing to me, so I decided I’d better go with it and see where it was leading me. The dexterity of my right hand has never quite came back after I broke my wrist, so logic follows that I have stayed away from my ceramics/clay. I pulled out my catalog of our mold inventory and just started to look at all the pictures. I figured something would jump out at me and start me in the direction those singing flowers were calling from. Falling down that “Rabbit Hole” could be just what I needed!
When I got to the figurines/fairies pages, the sunflower babies pulled at me. I pulled them and just casted their faces.
So cute and one step closer to the images playing in my mind. I knew where I was going with this and got to work rolling some clay out.
Now, I need to wait for her to dry. I have a sneaking idea that I can almost see where this is going….. Cyn
