Finding the Ahh moment
Creating beautiful art involves continually searching for the color, the pattern and texture that “clicks” — what i call the Ahh moment. When it’s right, I actually feel a body sense letting me know I’ve found it. I’m still learning, but its been rewarding to wait for — and to trust — that moment.
This piece is made of 6 layers of glass, each made up of 7or 8 different pieces with patterns and colors. It was great fun, if challenging, to put these puzzle pieces together layer by layer. I had to find many Ahh moments during the process, and ultimately achieved the overall sense of completion.
Does this resonate for you? Do you find an Ahh moment in your work, whether art or writing or another craft?
I'm using this page to talk about the art and joy of working with glass and silver.
