Surreal or Hyperreal Landscape

Today we took an early morning walk. Bruce threw the ball for Max while I knelt to take images of the daffodils blooming in our yard.  I am fascinated by the way flowers, at this perspective, become a surrealistic landscape in which the insects live. 

We are still recuperating from the 25th Annual NC Potters Conference, held this past weekend in a nearby town, Asheboro, NC. The folks at the Randolph Arts Guild are a hard working group who put on an inviting and happy conference. For 25 years Dwight Holland has planned the potters conference inviting an excellent line-up of potters and scholars as demonstrators and presenters.  This past conference was awesome, and we learned a lot of techniques, history, and we were reminded that there are so many different ways to handle clay and carry through with one's own unique voice in it. To read about the conference, visit the Courier Tribune- NC Potters Conference: Marks the 25th Year and Potters on Conference "Amazing" "Wonderful".  The Randolph Arts Guild have images of the conference on their Randolph Arts Guild facebook page.
