More Images of Recent Work

Here are some more images of the work that is still up in the S.P.A.C.E. show. Starting from top left: "Wolf in Sheep's Clothing (front)"; "Wolf in Sheep's Clothing (back)"; "Flower Vase"; "Sweet Tea Pitcher Set". I haven't yet edited all the images of the work, so my "Hare and the Tortoise" plate isn't shown. I am going to try to take images of the full show before it comes down. Everyone's work looks so great in the space (pun intended) :D!

S.P.A.C.E. show and Virginia break

Whew! Well the S.P.A.C.E. show is up and was a success! There was such a good turnout the night of the opening and I sold a piece! Now I need to focus on developing an itinerary for the collaborative workshop I am doing with another artist in the show (Mary Cale Anderegg). I was so stressed out right before setting up because an element in our kiln was out and it wouldn't reach temperature. Needless to say we were not stocked on those elements (because the kiln is only a year old), but we got the element in time and finished our firings. I was left with a final 05, 08, and 017 firing less than a week before the show deadline, and my boss needed to do an 03 and 05 firing too. Craziness! :)

I was able to shoot some images of the work before putting those pieces into the show. Above is my "Picnic Teapot Set." I was also able to drop off a decent amount of work to The Gallery and make the owner very happy. I learned that they were closed for the month of February due to flooding damage. My work was obviously not effected.

Now it's time for a short vacation. My husband and I are going to Virginia to visit some friends and enjoy some well deserved time together. Happy Spring Break to me!
