new work update

spoiler alert on danforth's new work:

no rabbits.

but lots of trees, and little dots that make lines, or diamond shapes.

and gold teeth, and maybe some rocket ships.

one princess dentata.

lots of little ceramic flowers. and hopefully lots and lots more, even. they take time, though, and i give them away too often.

here is what to do with a ceramic flower:

place several around a favorite work of art, like an accent, or to bring out the colors. this painting is by alli good and she is one of my favorite artists.

there is a light flickering out there. i keep meaning to walk towards it.

til next time. boca raton needs a tip drill.

This Is Where The Magic Happens

This is the tiny light-filled room that I work in since finishing my residency at the Odyssey Center for Ceramic Arts. I think it measures to be 8 x 8, enough space for someone whose work is rarely bigger than what can be held in one's hand. Of course, I am sometimes envious of the long, large work tables in the studios of my friends, but I am grateful for the wall of window, the soft winter sunset, and the fact that all I have to do is walk upstairs to get to work or check on how a piece is drying.

Its 30 days from today that I will set up my show at Eclipse Salon in downtown Asheville.

Here is what I have been working on:

I am feeling inspired by faberge eggs and Faberge birds.

little trees.

and so it goes. over and out.
