맛따라 멋따라 음원프로젝트 VOL.1⠀
어제 휴게소에서 엔제리너스를 보고서 써본 내 보고서..
내 커피는 받아 이제 열을
한잔의 여유 감정을 공유
내가 도깨비는 아니지만
오늘 너는 고은
모습을 하고 기다리지 주문
이순간을 통장 잔고처럼
지키고 싶지 영원히
그게 내 염원이고 네가 내 소원임
이뤄줄게 별 일은 없게
현실은 잠시 뒤로
올라가지 기분 위로
인생은 짧지 욜로
한 재미 네가 아닌 것들은 다 soso
The photo doesn’t really do them justice, but when we were in Durness over the holidays we added a pair of dancing rock hoppers by Lotte Glob to the family. It’s been a tradition since the year we got married to buy something from her sculpture Croft. These wee guys were desperate to be taken home this year. We just need to reorganise the house a bit to find them a home safe from the cats. #sculpture#ceramics#lotteglob#sculpturecroft#durness#locheriboll#rockhoppers
Here are some more pictures of what I found in Lotte Glob's garden... ceramic books into wich she inserts poems, rocks and other secrets. Of course, with the firing, all of it was fused together and will be forever. It is up to our imagination to invent the stories of these wonderful books. As you swipe you will see other sculptures, hiking boots aged with the passing of time and weather, and a giant floating rock that I took out of it's water basin because I wanted to admire it and hold it. This rock contained so much emotion, I wish Miss Glob could have been there to explain the story behind it but she was not there at that moment unfortunatley. Do you have ceramic artists that move you by what they do ? Wich ones are they ?
Voici d'autres photos de ce que j'ai pu voir dans le jardin de Lotte Glob... des livres de céramique dans lesquels elle insert roches, poèmes et autre secrets. Avec la cuisson, tout a fusionné ensemble et le sera pour toujours. Il n'en tient qu'à notre imagination pour raconter les histoire contenues dans ces livres. En balayant les photos, vous verrez d'autres sculptures, des bottes de marche vieillies par le temps et la météo, ainsi qu'une roche flottante géante que j'avais sortie de son bassin pour admirer et tenir dans mes mains. Je ressentais tellement d'émotions en tenant cette roche, j'aurais aimé que Lotte soit là pour me la raconter, mais elle n'y était pas à ce moment-là malheureusement. Quels sont les artistes céramique qui vous touchent le plus ? Qui sont-ils/elles ?
This is how I feel this week: happiness and gratitude to feel well enough to go back to school! This is a scuplture of a Scotish ceramic artist named Lotte Glob I discovered last summer. She has this beautiful land that she has filled with her work throughout the years, along flowers and spectacular nature. I was so moved to see this beauty and soul in her pieces I cried when I was there. Sculpture usually doesn't touch me, but hers move me. I brought home a pair of her floating rocks and hopefully this winter I will be able to make a very large vase and will be able to put it out on display on our own yard with Lotte's rocks floating in it. For now, the rocks are floating in a bowl filled with water in wich my cats decided to exclusively drink from now. On the other pictures, you can see the entrance of her shop/studio/land and also a path she made with tiles, rocks and shells she collected during her walks in the surrounding valleys and mountains of Scotland. What an amazing ceramist. She inspires me.
Je me sens comme ça cette semaine. Remplie de joie et de gratitude de pouvoir être là pour la 2e semaine d'école. Voici une sculpture de la céramiste Écossaise Lotte Glob que j'ai découvert lors de mon dernier voyage. Elle possède une terre magnifique sur laquelle elle a installé son travail au fil des années, entre les fleurs et paysages. J'en ai pleuré tellement j'étais touchée. La sculpture me touche rarement, mais les siennes me font vibrer. J'ai rapporté une paire de roches flottantes et j'espère avoir l'occasion de leur construire un grand vase durant ma session d'hiver pour enfin les exposer dans notre jardin à nous. En attendant, elles flottent dans un bol rempli d'eau que mes chats ont adopté comme abreuvoir de luxe. Sur les autres photos, on voit l'entrée de son studio/boutique/jardin, ainsi qu'un chemin de tuiles de céramiques qu'elle a fait en y amalgamant des roches et des coquillages qu'elle ramasse durant ses promenades dans les vallées et montagnes Écossaises. Quelle artiste. Elle m'inspire.
Ceramicist Lotte Glob lives a little North of Durness in a dreamland she's carved for herself. 14 acres of croft land, scattered with her unusual sculptures inspired by the surrounding landscape. She spends weeks going into the hills, wild camping, gathering inspiration as well as pieces of nature to incorporate into her work. I picked up a couple of wee gems & was moved by a beautiful quote she has in her studio...this can be seen in my next post.
"When buying art from an artist/maker, you are buying more than just an object/painting/ceramic. You are buying hundreds of hours of failures and experimentation. You are buying days, weeks and months of frustration and pure joy. You aren't just buying a thing, you are buying a piece of heart, part of soul, a moment of someone's life. Most importantly, you are buying the artist more time to do something they are passionate about." The beautiful words in Lotte Glob's studio, and a piece of her work I've taken with me to treasure forever ❤️
Having had an error message on my kiln controller during my stoneware firing which meant that I had no idea what temperature the kiln had reached or for how long; it was with some trepidation that I opened the kiln early this morning. Delighted to be greeted by this bowl! Inspired by a recent visit to Lotte Glob and bringing home seaweed from the beach in Scourie. No idea yet what is wrong with the kiln, nothing obvious to look at. A problem for another day. Now to focus on our exhibition in the Henley Arts Trail.
Now sitting in London remembering highlights of #scotland Danish artist and grandmother #lotteglob at her incredible home on Loch Eriboll was paradise - finding her random ceramic art scattered throughout her Croft had a gifted connection to country as was #northernshorepottery by Jenny Mackenzie Ross
