When Not Washing Up The Pots Is A Good Thing…

Visiting the Garderen Sand Sculpture Exhibition 2017, I found a selection of decorative pots, jars, bottles and the like to photograph and include in my artistic reference and inspiration files. Age, dust, chips and dents are all part of the charm of these pieces and so doing the washing up, cleaning or repairing them would certainly be detrimental in these instances. Cleaning up would be wiping away the character that comes with dusty bottles and lamps so I’m delighted to see that these have been presented in their “as is” state.

I also love that these are all a break from the endless stream of plastic goods, since most of them were made before the “plastic explosion” took place. I hope that we can be inspired to return to more products that use less plastic for the sake of our planet, these were made to last and we need to return to that ideology more too. If only that could be managed despite the constant battle of companies to incite the people of the world towards rampant consumerism.

I Am In For An Unexpected Surprise…

The exhibits continue one after another at Fort Kijkduin. I am taking up the rear of our group, enjoying it all at a leisurely pace. (“Fast” is a setting I no longer have after my accident anyway). There is however something very very different just around the corner… Looks like I am in for an unexpcted surprise…
