Clay


Bringing back an old piecemade of self drying clay...
I'll be making some new things today,
so we'll see how they turn out. I made this one out of some
left over clay and lots of blue paint.

I vividly remember my mom singing this song
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q4nC95SteAU
which in brief speaks about the sad blue cat, who waits for the love of his owner. So I took the figurative blue and made it literal.

Though some of the poetic beauty is lost in translation this is the jist of the song as a whole:

"When I was a little boy
Playing war by night
Jumping a fence to see you
And so in your eyes something new to discover
Roses said they were mine and a cat
Made my company
Since you have left me I wonder
why the window is bigger without your love

The cat is in our sky not going to go home if you are not
I know not love beautiful night
I sense that you are in that star

The Sad and blue
He forgets that you
Were mine.
Most will know my suffering
In my eyes there is a tear


Dear dear sweetheart
Reflection of moon laughing if love is missed
Fault I loved at the bottom that is life

The cat that is in our sky is not going to go home if you are not there
I know not love beautiful night
I sense that you are in the star

The sad and blue never forget that you were mine
you will always be …
spring clear drop


The cat is in the dark knows
that a teat in my soul there

The sad and blue
Never forget that you were mine,..."
