I’m a collector of quotes. One of my favorite quotes was written by Brenda Laurel, a brilliant researcher and writer, among other accomplishments:
“A design isn’t finished until someone is using it.”
I’ve often thought about this statement when I’m working on a piece of jewelry.
I’ve often read of the connection between messiness and artists.
There is apparently a direct correlation between disorganization and creative thought. More than one study has shown that creative types prefer chaos to order. Messy desks/work spaces promote thinking outside of the box.
Anyone in the field of art or design will tell you that there are days when they don’t feel very creative. That can be scary.
