Creativity Block

I have been stuck recently, creatively speaking. I think I was trying to hard to create a finished product and as a result, I wasn't getting much done at all. I went through tutorials, other people's work but since I was just following instructions - I really felt like I was cheating. One benefit was one project really got me working on cleaning up my workspace. My son's advice - keep it clean like a laboratory - has actually helped things flow a little better.

Today I finally put away all books and the magazines and just decided to see what happens. I started with some scrap clay and made a Stroppel cane and made it into a spiral. I just played around with the same colors and made several pieces.

I got piece finished completely and actually listed in my shop. I used strips of clay that were marbled together and reversed them to get the striped look. I really love the soft water colory look to the colors.
