..... brings creativity into the day-to-day ......
This has periodically come to the fore, partly from enjoying being active and making things, partly from my own creativity, and partly from force of necessity. Working in various media and styles to construct, adapt, renovate and decorate, brings creativity into the day-to-day (and also helps pay the bills). It also perpetuates the tradition of the maker, the one who prizes the stimulus of new creativity over the stability of the nine to five. It's a noble line stretching through centuries of men and women who have kept the inner life aflame by adapting their skills to the needs of the immediate. Unfortunately no evidence now exists of the four years I worked as a harness maker, culminating in an award for innovation from the SPOGA Trade Fair in Holland, but here are some other examples of 'the making.'
