~ Sewing ~ Sewing is similar to pottery; to create something from scrap into a usable object is full of satisfaction. I like D.I.Y. anything I could do and enjoy the process of mix matching different materials and color. I used to sew a lot of fabric items, including clothing. Recently, I started making handmade leather bag. Both of them have similarities that requires patience and the tricks to a nice item is the pattern cutting.

Pick of the Day

A friend bought me a wiping cloth and a glass mushroom from New Zealand. I love their pleasant color scheme. The floral graphic of the cloth and the form of the mushroom are very good inspiration for my pottery work. I like to get graphical idea from fabric pattern when creating my pottery art.
