remember picking blueberries in August?
(berry bowl by Gary Rith)
My pal Susan in Chicago wanted this guy and he is now on her counter full of apples! My other pal Lis of Root and Sprout bought one like it last summer....
With Susan it was funny . She asked for a berry bowl with cherries, having seen my strawberries. THE PROBLEM was that I had just made my first white bowls with blueberries, which I consider a superb new glaze combo. So I told Susan she didn't want cherries, go for the blueberries instead. That sort of defines the creative process--you have to make what you do best and are most inspired to do, even if the customer THINKS she wants cherries.
