Good advice I've picked from blogs, periodicals (magazines), books, and other sources I run into - mainly about working in clay. (I do enjoy other avenues of visual art and foods)

"There is no one so dangerous and powerful as those who receive empowerment from the wisdom of others and seek to prove its validity in their own lives... "
Dr. Richard Jacobs, in letters to Christa Assad published in The Studio Potter, June 2004.
(I got the hard copy of this magazine in a batch of free magazines on pottery from another blogger who was about to move to the west coast. I had to go pick the magazines up in Bakersville, NC. It was fun, and eventually I bought my wheel from that potter.) http://shambhalapottery.blogspot.com/
Look at the blogs being followed by someone's blog you haven't read before. This is a great off-shoot activity which can take you anywhere. It's better than a raw search, at least in my experience. I'm sorry my blog isn't listed in many people's "blogs I follow." But since I'm an introvert, I'm ok with my anonymity.

Thank you Miriam Williams. I saw a few blogs that I already am following, and added a few new ones to my own long list.
Today I enjoyed reading this article also. Lana Wilson's Advice on Developing Your Own Style Would you do this, or did you ever do this exercise? I'm awestruck that this is the way pinterest may well have started. I do like the way brainstorming is taken into a three dimensional format by using clay.
I would love to share with you some pictures of pottery by other potters, or photos by industrious people with better eyes and equipment than I have, but don't have time to ask for permissions. Just know that I do look, and my eyes feast upon the beauty that others create. You'll have to go see them yourself. I can give you links to their posts...just look at my list in the column to the right. ( I have no idea why my blog list that's on "my profile" is so sparse...I follow about 100 blogs at least)
And back to Lana Wilson's most important piece of advice. To go to work in the studio. Yep. Bye for now.
