examples of pieces I put aside
I do this all the time, I have an idea in my head, I create the piece and it does not look like the idea in my head so I put it aside. Sometimes I go back to the piece to see if I can use it, but most of the time I forget I have it.
What do you think about working with your flaws/mistakes?
Maybe we should think of our mistakes as a message from our mind, and it's telling us to go in a new direction. This is going to be my new train of thought, in my effort to not waste so much and trust my creative instinct.
There is a Japanese aesthetic called Wabi-Sabi, which is described as - beauty of things imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete. It is a beauty of things modest and humble. It is a beauty of things unconventional.
Maybe we need add a little Wabi-Sabi to our own work, and appreciate what we create, even with all of it's flaws.
Do you find that you scrap pieces because they don't look the way you want them to look?
Could you work with your flaws and create a new piece?
