Life in flux...
I have decided to make the move from Blogger to Tumblr as both an aesthetic choice and a fresh home for new ideas. I searched for awhile but transferring the blog no longer became an option when I decided I wanted to wipe the slate. Wordpress did not quite appeal to me and Blogger is clunky, cluttered and deters from my main purpose of showcasing my artwork. Consider this a stream line.

The past year brought on much change in my personal life. It has impacted my artwork and focus in a positive manner. It has been both productive and creative. I feel I have hit my stride with my work this year and I have a concise direction on which I am headed.

Change is continuous. Life and art is always in flux. This blog will embrace the belief that change is a good thing.

trial and error...

i devoted what little time i had in the studio this weekend to exploring sugar and creamer forms. the carved ones speak for themselves. the ones with no surface carvings will have cherry blossoms. i have always loved making lids and these ones turned out quite thin and refined. i'm still working out the creamer forms. i am finding that i either need to cut off the back to accentuate the spout, add to the spout or throw this will a curved lip so that they are more pronounced. i just need to get these fired and glazed before i decide which way i should continue with the form.

More planters...

Wednesday, June 01, 2011

I threw planters this past weekend. They are smaller in stature. More like an over sized mug. They are carved with a series of patterns. Some art nature referenced, others are more abstract. Enjoy.
