A must read post…

I mentioned this Blog in the last post, and do not hesitate to mention it again now…

We are often, as woodturners, especially those woodturners who try and move away from the traditional, told that we are so far behind the ceramicists and others. We’ve stagnated. We’ve become stuck in a rut. We are dull and uninspiring. We are destined to become a historical anachronism.

Well, it seems that we are not the only craft that is slow to move forward…

This Blog is well worth reading through…

Nothing to report…

And that’s about the strength of it really. Nothing to report. The dreaded white stuff is on the move at last. But that seems to be all that’s moving at the moment.

I did find a Blog with the best name ever…The C Word, (Because Craft is Art’s C Word)¬†Claudia Clare is a ceramicist with not only talent and imagination, but also a mission. Or perhaps missions.

I hope it’s not indicative of the way the year is playing out so far, but even SPAM has dropped off to only a few a day. Do spammers suffer from SAD? Are they unable to SPAM because they’ve unplugged the PC to provide a power point for the daylight lamp?

Oh well. Hopefully there will be something of interest to blog about soon…

Snow and no-show…

So it’s snowing. And the whole country is at a standstill. Not a single visitor to the craft centre all week so far, so not much point in being there in the cold.

It’s like Christmas week all over again. Only it looks more picturesque now.

You begin to wonder if it’s worth bothering at all.

 

Here’s a seasonal picture just for the sake of posting something! This one inspired by Mark over at Woodland Antics…who has had a flake or two more snow than we have in north Suffolk.
