A while ago I wrote a post called I Tried Being Subtle. It tells the story of how I came to make the Jug that is in this photo.
Today – same Jug, different photo and a brief discussion about the word Create.
Creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn’t really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That’s because they were able to connect experiences they’ve had and synthesize new things.
I made this jug in a workshop taught by the famed potter, Michael Casson. The style is entirely his, but the jug is my creation.
I took the photograph of the jug. The camera was a creation of Panasonic, but the resulting picture is my creation.
I ran the photo through the FotoSketcher software that was created by a man named David in Lyon, France. The aftermath of using the Emergence effect is my creation.
I posted this photo in my blog, which is here because of the creative minds behind WordPress. But the blog itself is my creative home.
There is a gap of 20 plus years between when I made the jug and when I created this post. I would have done it faster, but I had to wait for so many others to be creative first…
