One day in a wave of self-pity I told my husband that I wished I could ever, sometime in my life, again have time to take an art class. Tear. And then my birthday rolled around and my sweet husband remembered and signed me up for a handbuilding class. I look forward to Tuesdays all week, when I can zone out and focus on the clay in my hands.
For some reason, I am hard on myself with all art mediums except clay. With clay I can focus on the making, and not care what it looks like in the end. It’s very freeing.
These two inspiring pieces are by Kaye Blegvad and I’m her newest fan. You can check out more of my sculpture inspiration on Pinterest.

In her new book Southern Makers, photographer Jennifer Causey provides short biographies and photo essays featuring 25 artisans from four southern states. Whether you’re originally from the south or nouveau-southern, this book will make you proud of your southern connections. Causey’s interviews with the artisans highlight their appreciation for southern heritage, particularly a history of storytelling, craftsmanship, and a slower paced life, which allows for creative inspiration and experimentation. You’ll find yourself wanting to step into their studios and stay awhile.
