I am sure there are numbers of reasons why it is good to have plenty of people like your facebook page, but for me, having a new follower on my page doesn’t just give me joy, but a great excuse to get down and dirty. That is, with my tools and clay, of course!
For those who don’t know what I am going on about, I have been working on this collection of small clay faces. Each face represents a fan, hence each has a name. Overall, they make up a big and ongoing project I have called, you guessed it: facebook.
I see my facebook collection grow bigger and bigger with time. Materializing a number on my facebook/computer screen really gives me an idea of the support and appreciation my fans have for the work I do. To me, each face represents a person who believes in me. Words cannot describe how proud (and responsible) that makes me feel! Yet to cut it short, I can tell you that a new like gives meaning to my long working hours. A new like encourages me to keep on going!
Below are some of the few pictures I’ve taken during the making of the collection, Facebook – to get back into the main topic, which is the clay faces! I typically use clay with rough crashed stones, but because these sculptures are so small, I have chosen to use a softer kind of clay.
Though, I must say that no work is ever done in my studio unless I have my tools at hand…or in my hair!
AND sculptures are never considered finished unless you cook them in the oven. For now I have my faces drying out in my studio.
As for the moral of this story: although LIKES are like kisses and handshakes (in the real world), don’t be shy to give a like to a page or product you like. The receiver surely values your appreciation and time! 🙂
