Creative isolation in Istria
For a long time I have wanted to try one or two months in isolation for the sole purpose: focused creativity and work. So I packed my clay and tools and went to south tip of Istria, where my parents own a weekend house. House is situated in a small settlement of about 10 houses, in the middle of fields and shrubs, on the top of a small hill looking down to Adriatic sea. On the day of my arrival, I already found my first inspirations. These are the leaves of local plants, including agave, olive tree and tree I need to find what its name is. Today I start working with my clay. I am excited to see if I find my crunch time. Weather is cold but sunny, and I have my fireplace to keep me warm. Fire gives me great comfort as well.
