Batch 3 :: Candy Bowls

Starting a mass of candy bowls. Thrown twenty today with two more batches to come. Let them set up a little and then started messing with them.

Messing is play time. The mind has to be clear, no thoughts or running dialogue, as the action has to come from the heart. You have to let go. What happens, happens.

It’s not as easy as it sounds.

Image taken about half way through the process. I find it’s good to make some moves, then walk away. Spend some time somewhere else.

Then come back and be more brutal.

It’s then that you can release yourself from any personal ties to the piece. It’s then that magic happens.
