The Fires of Life -- Artisans Secrets

Have you ever wondered where all of these artisans grab their inspiration from? Do you think it is a never ending well of creativity they have? Well as an artisan I can tell you, while there are days that the creativity seems to flow seamlessly, most days not so much. We artisans struggle just as much as you do to find our inspiration, our creativity, our motivation and so forth. Whether it be in our art or our daily lives.

But we have a secret and I am going to share it with you.

See we artistic types appear to always have inspiration, because we look for it everywhere.

That's it, that's the big secret.

See finding inspiration doesn't have to be hard. It is a matter of looking for it everywhere.

I tend to take a more elemental approach, for me nature and the natural world are a never ending source of inspiration.

Take fire for instance. Think about the power and energy that goes into the creation, the oxygen required to maintain the flame. Yes, it is destructive, but there is power and beauty in that as well. For me a simple roaring camp fire is enough to inspire the creativity and motivate me to do. Fire is life, and every one's life should be on Fire.

At Entwined Vines we very much celebrate life by creating pieces that represent the elements around us that inspire us. This last week we extended that creative process, to curate collections from various artists whom have created pieces that inspired us personally.

Please check them out and leave us comments on what you think? Tell us what in them, inspires you personally?
