The Exciting And Enthusiastic Effects Of Collaboration

My collaborator: Tara Dyson-Holland

I’ve admired the artistic talents of Tara Dyson Holland for several years now.  She has a quirky, humorous take on the world and it shows in her art – lots of little characters, flowers, lines, circles, colour!

We mutually agreed to collaborate one day and we have FINALLY started!

The amazing thing about this collaboration is that we have already inspired each other to work outside our comfort zones.  Initially, we have exchanged pots – with the caveat that the other person can do whatever they want with the pot!

Our theme is Food & Flowers – cause that’s what we are both all about!

We’ve only just begun, but it’s going to be fun!

And another.

The results have been so fun, enlightening and inspiring.  I’ve gone in a direction that I had never even considered before and it is really making me make new, exciting work.

I’ve been making vessels that are particularly suited to displaying flowers.  It has really pushed me out of my norm in making traditional functional pieces.

I highly recommend the collaboration effect.  It makes one work and think differently.

Now go collaborate!
