I have fallen in love with these textural glazes!!!

Hand craved candles, absolutely beautiful work!
As I look at these candles I think to my self the similarities I could create though the agate process in ceramics pealing away at the surface could reveal beautiful texture and colour. I think this is an area I will explore though in the upcoming weeks. i think they will look quite well on my limpet shell peices. Hand craved candles, absolutely beautiful work!

"Once, Picasso was asked what his paintings meant. He said, ‘Do you ever know what the birds are singing? You don’t. But you listen to them anyway.’ So, sometimes with art, it is important just to look."
— Marina Abramović  (via observando)
"“A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty.”
― Albert Einstein"
