Early this year I received a lovely order for one of these mirrors after reposting the original image from my 2014 Leaf & Seedhead Collection. I jumped at the chance to create the piece again. Occasionally I make pieces that catch my breath, making it difficult to part with them, this glass mirror was one! Safe as to say it went back into production!
The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it…’ – J.M. Barrie, Peter Pan
As solitary worker some artists have moments of doubt, whether the things we make will be enjoyed by others as much as it was great to make.
In times of uncertainty I’ve found it best to keep on making, striving to improve on the last piece. Today I’m reflecting on & enjoying this large bowl, commissioned by a lovely couple. It now lives on their coffee table, somewhere in beautiful Yorkshire.
