ceramics. its such an easy word to say. but just like making something worth, making ceramics is never too easy. i have an artist-block these recent days. i don't know what makes my mind too cloudly-and thats might be a problem. so, here i'am..blogging about ceramic for triggering my mind.
this review about Glasglow ceramic Studio seems enough to make myself want to work there. but still, i have these visual-stuck for my works. and i find Wonderlust really neat! and i read about this art blog called white-swallows and design blog called designinspiration. nice! and tonight is a big night for some of my friend who join BaCAA or Bandung Contemporary Art Awards. i really hope they will win. :)
