I've just updated my shop with a new collection of work! No inkwells yet, sadly, but there's a whole assortment of other pots.

Inkwells, to be partnered up with my thrown ink pens and their rests or the larger palette sets—although they seem to be equally useful as bud vases. They will have corks to keep them sealed too, but for now I’ve rather liked having them around as lone, decorative objects.

These forms are lovely to throw, like my other bud vases with the downward sloping rim these are first thrown taller than they need be before the clay is carefully thrown inward in a collaring motion. I use the tip of my index finger to create the undercut beneath the protruding rim, which is mostly covered in glaze once finally fired. These are modeled off the old Victorian salt fired ones you can find quite commonly, although surprisingly I haven’t found a whole one since I started making them, but I’d like one in my pot collection at some point.

I don’t have a measure for the diameter the whole needs to be on these, I simply throw them to be a touch wider than my forefinger. Of course they’ve got to allow the pens to pass through comfortably, which they do. My latest batch of thrown pens are especially thin, far more so than any I’ve made before, which was a challenge. In the next few weeks I’ll be firing the rests for them so hopefully a handful will appear on my shop soon, for the first time ever.

Each of my palette sets will also include a pen, rest and inkwell, together with the wooden tray and pots that fill that, alongside anything else I feel is appropriate to that specific group, be it a single vase, or a bowl perhaps if it matches numerous other palette pieces or the pen.

Look at the shimmer on those legs! This is good old Aussie Spotted Gum with a Grey Gum top. Beautiful when finished but challenging to work with due to timber movement. Adrian knew this from the outset but wouldn't be persuaded from his timber choice. Having now made 2 small and 2 large tables in the same design Adrian concedes the warnings were not unwarranted. We used 3 coats of Livos oil and late afternoon Sydney winter sunshine to show off this interesting timber.⠀

Du kannst alles erreichen, wenn du es nur willst. Du musst lediglich deine Techniken, dein Umfeld, deine Visualisierungen oder einfach immer noch mehr von allem ändern, optimieren, perfektionieren.
Du bist der Designer deines Lebens. Du darfst niemals aufgeben, denn wenn du niemals aufgibst, wirst du am Ende immer gewinnen. Dein Ziel erreichen.
Also dranbleiben. Weiter kämpfen. Immer weiter.
Das ist die simple und klare Wahrheit.

Doch es ist auch der größte Bullshit.
Denn die Wahrheit ist: Du kannst nicht alles ändern, du hast nicht die Macht, alle Umstände zu ändern. Manchmal hast du die Chance vor den Umständen wegzulaufen, doch die Umstände bleiben. Und manchmal hast du einmal nicht die Chance wegzulaufen.
Das fängt im Kleinen an und hört im Großen auf. Menschen wie Nelson Mandela, Frida Kahlo oder auch Guido Orefice aus "Das Leben ist schön" sind dafür großartige Vorbilder.

Manchmal ist es wichtig einfach anzunehmen.
Zu akzeptieren, dass du die Umstände nicht ändern kannst. Das ist schwer. Sehr schwer. Manchmal ist es ein langer, schwerer Kampf.
Doch am Ende dieses langen Weges, wenn du es geschafft hast anzunehmen, dann erkennst du, dass du nur eines ändern konntest:
Deine eigene Haltung zu dem, was ist.
Und da ist dann Friede, Ruhe und Zufriedenheit. Das Ende des Kampfes.
Und wo solltest du aufhören zu kämpfen? #annehmen #acceptance #nofighting #zufriedenheit #bonn #nelsonmandela #fridakahlo #lifeisbeautiful
