Wise words by Henri Matisse and perhaps words he spoke when tackling something new, something rarely done, something outside the box.
Well this is where I found myself when asked to come to the rescue with my latest commission.
It was a case of courage, doing something rarely done and being creative in the mix.
A much loved pot once owned by her mum, it ended up in pieces one day. So the challenge for me was to recreate it so there was still a lasting memento, a sentimental piece.
Many hours of breaking down the pieces and then reconstructing the six birds proved that my hours of jigsaws paid off.
It was a privilege to be able to salvage those pieces....and create a very personal treasure...
