Abstract art - what does it mean to you?
A couple of posts ago, I wrote about the madness of art. At the end of the post, I showed a photograph (see below) of some art that I really liked when I saw it on the website of a fellow writer.
Is this abstract art?
To me it is. From what little I know of its creation, it wasn't intended to be a piece of abstract art but in my eyes, it ended up that way.
The origin of this work was in three dimensions. It was, as I am sure some people will see, a piece of pottery. You can read about it here on the website of the creator. (Not God :-))
The creator in this case was writer, Christoper Waldrop of Free Thinkers Anonymous whose quirky work I adore.
I first read about Christopher's early dabblings with ceramics here in this very entertaining blog post about the eccentric sounding aunt who introduced him to clay.
When I saw his later post about the making of a ceramic bowl from small fish fashioned out of clay, I was intrigued to see the finished product and was looking forward to seeing pictures when it was done.
