Sometimes I sit in front of a lump of clay and don´t know what to do with it.
Then I begin to knead and pull at it without any intention whatsoever.
The last time I was doing that someone in my pottery course suddenly exclaimed:
“Ha! That looks exactly like horse kicking its legs in the air!” At that point it really didn´t, well not much, but it did show a tiny resemblance to this suggestion. And it was enough to give me a direction for my unused energy and all of a sudden I was kneading and pulling more purposefully!
This is what came out of it – my Happy Horse! Hope you like it!
P.S. I posted pictures of the horse with and without glaze to show you the difference. 🙂
