100 Bottles 100 Days by Anna Whitehouse
Today is the first day of 2019 and there are many people choose to set a new goal on that day. But before you start to do that, maybe we should go over what we have done last year and check whether we have achieved the goal? There maybe many checks or crosses on your checklist but for those who have strong determination are sure to accomplish their goals in certain way. Just like U.K.-based ceramic artist Anna Whitehouse, she set a goal on January 1, 2018 to create a new bottle each day for 100 days.
Each white ceramic bottle was uniformly shaped, but the designs she created on the surface differed each day. Some bottles were punctured with tiny repetitive holes, while others were covered in leaf-like applications or floral motifs. From standard clay tools to pen lids, tweezers, scissors, and even a string of beads, Whitehouse tried pressing and scraping any tool I could get my hands on into the clay. The artist compares the 100-day-long exercise to journaling or filling a sketchbook, as each new object was like a brand new sketch that could be learned from for the next day. Below are some of bottles from her project. Maybe not every one looks appealing to you, but they are perfect witnesses of her accomplishment of goal. Now, let’s think about, what will be your goal for 2019?
