Words Challenge

In the spirit of my "doing something different" weekend, this is my entry for the Inspiration Avenue challenge - the theme this week was "Words". 

I've altered a photograph I took of some rather fabulous vintage spoons that I couldn't resist buying from etsy a while ago.
My inspiration was some words from "The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock" by T.S.Eliot - the poem in the background of the photograph, and one of my favourites.

"For I have known them all already, known them all:—
Have known the evenings, mornings, afternoons,       
I have measured out my life with coffee spoons"


  1. oh my!! that's different alright! and it looks real cool!! one look, it looks like an advert for those rare cutlery that you find in high end stores! fabulous!! are you an art director in your day job by any chance?

  2. Ahh, this is beautiful! I love the silvery and blue color scheme, and those spoons are fabulous! No wonder you couldn't resist buying them!

  3. This is gorgeous- I love the colors you chose to work with the spoons- perfect! Isn't it fun to try something different every once in a while?

  4. Yes, it really is different. Those spoons are beautiful especially against the blue.

  5. A perfect piece - were you stirred up with inspiration??!!

  6. Thanks everyone!

    I just realized I could have entered this 2 weeks running, last week's challenge being tea and coffee!

    Lisa - ha ha very good!

  7. T.S Elliot must be clapping his hands and beaming. I love his words...always. And I love your art...always, too.

  8. Hi Angie. Well. What can I say? Where do you get your ideas from? Love it! How's the potters wheel experiments going by the way?

  9. Aw thank you Lisa :)

    Rona I've done no more pottery since my first attempt - wasn't sure that anything else I make could be quite as beautiful as my first attempt (joking there, obviously!) Maybe one day!

  10. I love this with the spoons. So interesting, and I love the monochrome colors. Wonderful!
