Andrew Goss and Sandra Noble Goss (who have posted here in the
past, http://www.makersgallery.com/goss/rollprint.html) have
excellent instructions on their website.
Though I am not the poster of the original roll printing question,
thank you so much for the link to the beautiful work. I especially
liked the brooch “eyes are like leaves”. I find this work truly
inspiring and original. The best word I can find to describe it
actually is “cool”. With all of the talk of copying styles and trade
secrets and whatnot of the past few days (and I had posted my own
juvenile response to the trade secret question) I wanted to throw
something else out there.
What I think about most is having the chance to hear the opinions of
some of the innovators (please don’t be shy, you know who you are).
What did it feel like to have that first “original thought”? People
view your work and say things like “I have never seen anything like
it”. Other people emulate your style, possibly try to copy what you
have done, but you had the “original thought”
I turn 38 a week from today and I am so glad that I have found
something I love to do. I wake up every day and continue to try to
find my idea. I want people to say to me someday “I have never seen
anything like it”.
So, what are the thoughts on originality?
