An inspiring 2014 :: Um 2014 inspirador

It’s been a quiet beginning for 2014. I am taking the time to work on my ideas for the Little Creatures and it feels good to slow down. I look around and I have this image of seeds germinating slowly underneath the ground before sprouting in the spring: it feels like the Little Creatures are going through the same process.

I am taking the time to think but I am also sitting at my workbench playing with clay. I am experimenting with new critters and playing with colour. It feels good to be able to work on models, making colour palettes, and if needed, start again until a creature takes its final shape.

I hope you are also having an inspiring beginning for 2014!

2014 tem tido um início calmo. Estou a trabalhar nas minhas ideias para as Little Creatures com tempo e sabe bem abrandar. Olho à minha volta e tenho uma imagem de sementes a germinar devagarinho sob a terra antes de rebentarem na Primavera: sinto que as Little Creatures estão a passar pelo mesmo processo.

Tenho-me dedicado a pensar, mas também me tenho sentado na mesa de trabalho para brincar com massa polimérica. Estou a experimentar novas criaturas e a brincar com cores. Sabe bem fazer modelos para novas peças, definir esquemas de cor, e, se for preciso, começar de novo até que uma peça ganhe a sua forma final.

Espero que 2014 também esteja a começar de forma inspiradora para vocês!
