So the student show opening was last friday. I already knew i had gotten two pieces into it which i was very excited about. It was exciting to go to the opening because my family all cam down and my brother also had a piece in the show. I knew the better of the two pieces was my chain basket, but i didn’t expect the reaction i got. People were so excited about that basket. I even won two awards for it. On ceramics guild award, and one given by a local artist guild that i will be giving a talk about my work to on April 19th. All in all it was a great night. Got to see my family, won some money, and got to bolster the resume a bit. Thanks for everyone who has supported me over the years.
Here is a link to some ball state student work. sadly it hasn’t been updated lately so i don’t have anything up there.
Someone was asking me about my senior show the other day, so i thought I would post this one more time. Sorry if your sick of seeing it. Actually I’m not, I’m pretty dang proud of this show, and I think you should watch the video again. Thanks
In the few min I have I want to let you all know that I managed to get two pieces into the national juried show Feats of Clay in Lincoln, CA. I’m so excited because there were only 70 pieces selected and there were 6 chosen from Ball State. I guess that’s a good sign for Ball State Ceramics. Anyway i will try to post the website soon. Keep checking.
I like ceramics to do lists. They give me a sense of accomplishment when i can check off a bunch of random things i have been wanting to make. My problem lately is that I have been so tied up with teaching that i haven’t gotten to make anything lately. As a result i threw today for about 10 hours…. 10 HOURS!!! thats intense. The funniest thing is that i only got a handful of pieces finished. In the end i had to give up and just bag things for the night. To do lists are a combination of productive tool and daunting task. Today unfortunately it was a little more of the later.
I recently had my work chosen for a porcelain and celadon show at muddy’s gallery in santa Ana, California. The extremely exciting part is that there were 200 applications for the show, and 45 pieces chosen. Of those 45 i had 2!!! pieces chosen for the show, Art Nouveau tea pot, and Art Nouveau Teacups, I feel very encouraged that there are more people out there who really like my work than my mom and fiance.
