Inspired Whimsey

An artist's inspiration can come from literally anything and everything.

Laura Peery's work was originally inspired by childhood memories of time spent in her grandmother's New Orleans dress shop, "College Frocks". Her medium is porcelain clay, which she discovered can be made to resemble fabric by impressing it with textured materials.

As a sometime potter, I love her work. I made a little nonfunctional tea pot out of polymer clay for my sister-in-law, who is a quilter, and gave it to her for Christmas a couple of years ago. It looks great sitting on her little shelf that's over the sewing machine. Nonfunctional tea pots were one of my specialties back when I was still in school in the ceramic studio.

What I find so interesting about this is that this potter was inspired by clothing....and, if you look closely, you'll see her work is full of ideas for color, as well as for art dolls, quilting, collage, and assemblage.

I have undertaken some longer projects here in my studio, and while I have no new finished work of my own to post, I am going to do a series of posts on inspiration.
