O.K. it has officially been five days since your last post. I wanna see some creativity mister. It doesn't have to be pictures, just a few words of inspiration will do fine. In other words...dance for us monkey!



Your friend,
Otter

It's going to be an ongoing thread about how my mind works... where my inspiration comes from and how one piece/idea leads to another. If you expect me to finish all of these ideas or finish them all the way to completion, you obviously don't know me very well. It may get crazy... I may leave you hanging out there in limbo wanting me to actually go in one direction... and I won't. My mind goes in 37 different directions at once. It's all part of living with ADD and being a creative soul.

OK, so here's what's on my mind this morning... I need to get 10 beads done for an exchange... they can't be pendants, but I want them to be hearts. I decided to pierce the body with hot tungsten to make the holes. I also don't want it to look unfinished. I have an idea for that and I'll share pics with you later...


Then I started thinking about my off mandrel donut beads...





and I added my idea for making the hearts look more finished to that... and then... I added a drip from my latest work to the mix.

The drip looks like this...





More pics and ideas to come later. Hold on folks, this is going to be fun!
Mr Smiley - I just love your way with glass, you make it look so easy!
Your drips are all the same size!!!! I can never get my drops to be like that, I make ear rings and have to really make a few before I can get them to look the same!!

Not quite what I had in mind Brent, but it was amusing...... and what an uncanny resemblance, I thought it was you for a minute.

I am so intrigued by your work. You have such a wide and varied style, I have always admired your hearts, but when I checked out your website and saw all the delicious soft glass organics...I couldn't help myself, I had to buy one!!! Keep up the amazing work, and I love the inner dialog you have shared with us. Makes me feel like I am not so crazy and scattered after all...maybe it is just an artist thing.

My mind doesn't follow any set guide lines when I sit down to work. I am horrible at doing production stuff. I have to sit down with a book on CD and really try to focus on that, so my mind is occupied and doesn't wander. The last few days have been weird. I started to torch again after a weekend off. I had the kids and I wasn't feeling well a few days last week. I'm just making a little of this and that right now. I actually did some boro beads on sticks.
