This piece, a chicken planter is quite wacky, chicken little even. Part slab, part pinched but somehow the head's too long and low, the tail's too small, the neck collar too big and so on. I knew as I was making this it would not be what I had in my mind's eye. But I kept going since I hate to give up so easily. The saying 'nothing ventured, nothing gained' comes to mind. A trite expression but sometimes I think trite expressions are something to live by. So it's back to the drawing board and studio for me with my chicken planter idea. What about you, if you know something isn't working do you keep going or stop and forget about it? Do you try again? Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
