For those of you that know my work, you are probably well aware that I don’t shy away from color.  I love colors.  I love to find new combinations of color that work together.  There are days I think I make pots just to have a 3-dimensional canvas to put color on.  But, lest you think my love of color is completely superficial, I should also mention I am deeply interested in the psychology of color.

Last week, I was spraying a set of “Sunny Disposition” White Wine Chalices when I realized that my favorite color, right now, is orange.  People that have known me for a little while may be saying to themselves, “but that wasn’t your favorite color last time I talked to you.”  Over the last couple of years, my favorite color was red; before that it was purple.  So, it got me thinking:  since colors can influence feelings and emotions, could it be that our feelings and emotions also influence our choice of favorite color?

Orange combines the strength and passion of red with the joy, energy, and happiness of yellow.  Right now, I feel driven to fully realize Lach Arts as a full time business, and at the same time I am feeling energized and happy about getting into the studio and making work.  My new favorite color certainly suits my current mood and situation.

So, leave me a note in the comments section.  I want to hear from all of you.  Have you ever found that your favorite color has changed?  Did that change seem to coincide with a change in your life or your outlook?  I really want to know…I’m a bit obsessed with color.
