Creativity | Coral Collection {one-of-a-kind fused glass art | Knoxville, TN}


the state or quality of being creative.
the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns,relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas,forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality,progressiveness, or imagination: the need for creativity in modern industry; creativity in the performing arts.
the process by which one utilizes creative ability: Extensive reading stimulated his creativity.

Creativity can be an elusive beast. Just like writers get 'writer's block', artists get 'artist's block'. Sometimes my creativity is on walk-about and I have to relax, stop stressing and let is find its way home. I could put up posters on telephone poles and offer a reward, but it would be a waste of my time and money because I know my creativity will come back. And it will probably be better than before. No worries, it's all good.

A couple of weeks ago I had a brilliant streak of creativity and developed a brand-new collection as well as a fresh style of photographing my work. It was amazing. Everything came together just right and I was so pleased with my art- both fused glass and photography. Then this week arrived and I have been wondering where my creativity went. Of course, it didn't really go anywhere, it just went into hiding. Rather than dwell on something I probably can't change today, I decided to share some of pieces from the new collection. Appropriately named the Coral Collection because the pieces resemble coral, these bowls appear delicate but are in fact rather sturdy. These fused glass bowls are fabulous as stand-alone conversation pieces or as functionally decorative receptacles for sea shells, soap or candles. Take a moment to relax and enjoy the serenity of the Coral Collection.
