depth

Working hard trying to get a bit more depth and richness to the surface of the rockpool boulders. Bringing in a few more sunset colours of purples and oranges as a background to the other stormy tones. Of course it always helps to have Sue Spencer’s wonderful haiku poems to work with  http://the-grumponthehill.blogspot.co.uk/ I’ve even taken a few teetering steps and started incorporating some haiku of my own. A bit rough around the edges. Funny, I find it easier to impress them into clay than commit them to paper or blog – thinking of how the words physically work on a 3 dimensional object is one of my favourite creative processes, it really helps to form the rhythm of each haiku and the rhythm of each sculpture also.
