Blog Post #3

I’ve built 3 individual pieces, I’m not sure if they flow together very well as one. I view them more as individuals because I intend to experiment with adding drawings on different areas of the works. For example, I would like to draw on the fabric of the bottom right sign, or drawing on theContinue reading “Blog Post #3”

This past week I made terra sigillata, which is as smooth as I remembered in being. I really enjoy using it to create multiple layers and some depth to my work. I also mixed about 10 different Mason stains and created test tiles with different amounts of layering of the white t sig, then differentContinue reading “Blog Post #2”

And so I’ve started a new piece, finally. It feels good! This time around I am going for less tiles, hence less risk for smaller/thin pieces to warp. I’m also trying to reduce how much I’m moving these pieces around. This new work is about a third smaller than the first, which I think isContinue reading “Blog Post #9”

It’s the point in every project where I have no idea what I’m doing and I have to make a decision that determines if the piece will be successfulContinue reading “Blog Post #6”

Because we reviewed and discussed artist statements this past week, I have been asking myself a lot of questions about what I’m trying to say with my work, and if I’m being honest: I don’t know. For so long my work was about my relationships with the outside world; friends, strangers, specific locations, or objectsContinue reading “Blog Post #4”

Blog Post #3

This week I continued building the current work I started and began sketching and planning the next work I would like to make. I finished up the second figure this week and will complete the third figure of the current work during the next few days. After finishing all of the rough building, I willContinue reading “Blog Post #3”
