We are those people that when we watch a movie or some TV we are always looking in the background at the pots.
Yep, forget the plot if there is a good pot in the background.
Did you see that vase! Back it up and we look again.
Gee, if that guy would move we could see it better.
If it is clay it has our attention.
The other thing that grabs my attention is details, or lack of details.
I am watching a guy in a scenic eat something; let's say pie.
He takes a bite of the pie and then they pan away.
They come back and he has a whole slice sitting there.
They pan away and come back and the plate is empty, then away and the pie is back.
Drives me insane.
I want that job.
So we are watching some movie the other night and Mark spots this lamp in the background.
And it just has to come out of his head.
It's like having a tune rolling around- you have to get it out.
I am busy carving away on the tile backsplash.
I thought I would just show you my "carving station".
The blocks of wood help me gauge the depth as does the bar across the top.
This piece of bamboo is what I use to gauge the depth for the inside areas.
Hey- this is not rocket science!
It's that detail thing!
