Hard at Work

Still hard at work and school these days but any free time I have (which is not much) is spent trying to expand my art.  Hard to do when I am moving 600 miles away to a new home and starting a new life with, I dare say, the man of my dreams.  Once everything has settled and I have a new studio set up I hope to bring you more pictures of my ceramic creations and share with you my artistic insights.  May all your days be happy ones.

The Artist without a Muse

It is never a good thing as an artist when you no longer have time to do that which you love.

Seeing is Believing

One artist I looked at recently is not a ceramic artist but a painter.  Her name is Yvonne Jacquette and she paints realistic looking ariel views of cities and towns.  I like her work because it is almost like a record of history because skylines and cities change from year to year.  Here is one of her paintings.
My work so far is still in progress and I hope to have a few pieces finished for Tuesday's crit session.  I am going to create an environment for my final piece in Dec and will be showing a few of the pieces I have created so far.  Hope you like them.

Work


This is a pot that I have been working on.  It (and others) were created using slip and paper.  I enjoy making them because it reminds me of being a kid and making paper maché balloons.
