Over the past few months I have been drawn to the story of Alice in Wonderland and in particular the ever “in a hurry White Rabbit.” He keeps popping into my mind and calling me. I think its to do with time! Perhaps I feel I am running out of time. Perhaps my chronological age bears no resemblance to my inner spiritual age ( ah that’s true – I may never grown up!) though I have slowed down.
I’ve been creating ceramic pieces around the theme of time — small fantasy clock pieces, a rabbit with a tea pot and a clock! I’m having great fun. Found a box of old watch parts and am using them in my work. That was serendipity! Is that what it’s teaching me? To let go and have fun!? Whenever I have fun with my creative work – others enjoy it more too.I know that.
A group of local artists have a light- hearted day coming up – with some creative play for kids, followed by a mad hatters tea party and an exhibition. I’m making clay biscuit with the words EAT ME on them – for kids to paint — and some wacky clock circles too. Also creating some framed time themed art for the exhibition. The theme is the ‘Lost hour project’ to coincide with the clock change.
