Hi everyone! Sorry I haven’t posted in like 6 months, but I’m FINALLY able to make some new work and more than one piece at a time, but I’ll explain how I got there. Earlier in the year, after the Adrian Arleo workshop, I was hoping I would have had a kiln/studio at my parents house I could set up since I bought a small kiln sitter last December. However…. I think they were just playing along and didn’t want to tell me it wasn’t going to happen, so I waited and cleaned the garage to no avail (I wish the would have just told me no, and it would have saved me A LOT of time and grief). Just when I thought all hope was lost, I found a ceramics open studio class at a local arts center, the Jamestown Arts Center in Jamestown,RI and I decided to look into it. A few people, including one of my college professors, Chris Archer, had mentioned this place being pretty great, but I’m so shy I didn’t know how to approach with trying to make new work, so I let it slip my mind for a while. But on my birthday out of some strange curiosity I decided to look up the arts center and there it was, my golden ticket to making work again. so I facebook messaged the place and I was waiting for a response… kinda disappointed nothing was happening. So a week later I go with my family to a reunion and on the way back I FINALLY get a reply that the class was on going and I could join in anytime! I was super excited AND on that same day I got a call from a Hope Gallery in Bristol, RI where I show my work that I sold my first piece! SAME DAY PEOPLE!! So fast forward a few weeks i have a few pieces in the works and hope to get them fired soon and I will be posting my WIP pieces ASAP!
TL:DR- I’m finally making some new pieces and will start posting here again, I’m really excited things are starting to look up for me.
PS: I will FINALLY get my mushroom lady from the workshop all finished and take her home at the beginning of August so I will post pictures of her finished and nicely photographed here soon :)
