I’d like to use this blog to post an archive of my works. It occurs to me that i don’t really have a place that you can see a number of my pieces all in one place, so here is … Continue reading
One of the things that I set as a goal for myself recently was to rekindle my ‘serious’ art – of course if you know me, you know I’m anything but serious! But, I have gotten a bit sidetracked in the past few years. Most of the things I create have been for projects, articles, online classes, product samples… all fun, of course, but not the kind of work that really pushes me as an artist to experiment and stretch my skills.
So, I’m making more studio time and making more pieces that I want to make. And of course exploring new venues to showcase them.
I’m very excited to be part of the prestigious American Craft show in Baltimore in Feb. It’s one of the premier juried fine craft shows in the country, and just the kind of place I’d like my ‘serious’ art to be.
I’m trying to cram in as much studio time as I can before next month. I’ve got a few things done that I’m pleased with so far, and hey! weeks before the show – that’ll be plenty of time, right?
If you’ll able to come enjoy this show, please do! It’s a tremendous event with so many beautiful things. And say hi to me! I’m in booth#827.
In praise of polymer clay:
It’s been 12 years so far that I’ve been totally enamored of polymer clay. And i was moved today, for no particular reason, to just say how wonderful it is to live in a time and place with access to a medium that can do so much to assist creativity. I love all the brands, and am excited in the coming years to learn and experiment more with all the clays – each has such interesting things to offer. Thanks to Premo, Fimo, Kato, Cernit, Pardo and all the rest for adding such a wonderful medium to our lives!
I’m just sharing this little epiphany for what it’s worth to my fellow career artists, and those headed down that path.
Keep your soul, even while you sell out! ;-D
