I’m super excited about the upcoming NCECA conference next year that will be in Providence, RI. I live in RI and I’m SO EXCITED its so close to me. I don’t have to spend a fortune on plane tickets, or hotel, I could honestly take the bus up for $2 Kennedy Plaza which is in the heart of downtown, up the street from the RI convention center. I haven’t been able to go since 2011 because of money/time, and having at my door step is so fantastic. I spent the last of the money I made with one piece I sold in a gallery, but I’m happy to invest what I’ve made from my work back into the field for my own personal growth. If anyone on tumblr is going, I would love to meet you guys!
Also, sorry I haven’t posted my newest piece. Its done and drying but I forgot to take a photo of it, like a dummy. Next wednesday I will be bisque firing so I’ll upload a picture then. Fingers crossed for a good firing!
A work in progress thats a bit different from work I’ve done in the past. its a figure in a pitcher plant and there is a separate piece that will be epoxied on post firing. I had done an illustration with this concept and I wanted to bring it to life with clay, so i decided to go for it. I originally envisioned it as a wall piece and maybe in the future I will make more pitcher plant figures that are all pieces. I haven’t made any wall pieces before, so I will experiment with that and see if I like it.
