This is the moment of truth - the "creative process"- when I sink into myself for inspiration.
There are several stages, and all of them feel like a whirlwind or a carousel that turns faster and faster. From the idea which can be spontaneous or built, the design drawings, the research, version upon alternative version, the prototype, modification upon modification, the finished item, the re-finished item, the finally finished item…the days that pass, the firing of the pottery, the opening of the oven – little earlier and risky – the impatience in the middle of a great patience, the metal, the soldering, to hammer or not to hammer the metal, trial upon trial, mounting, mounting, mounting…and suddenly you are holding your idea and inspiration in your hands. It may feel like you just snapped your fingers, but it has taken two months or two weeks. It is always different.
