Last weekend of the summer

August 22, 2010 2 comments

School starts tomorrow.  I’m kind of dreading it.  Once it starts, the current carries you, but the atmosphere is such a contrast from the calm summer session, and the change is completely abrupt.

I had big plans for time in the studio this weekend, and I did spend most of Saturday and part of today there.  I was thinking I’d do some throwing, which I haven’t done for months.  However…I had three handbuilt platters to finish up which took WAY longer than I thought it would.

This evening I tried to handbuild some cups…and well, this is the result:

Handbuilding?  I think I’m drawing the line at cups.  I love throwing cups on the wheel…handbuilding them not so much. And, I think I’m just bad at it.

I am, however, kind of jazzed about the thick textured rim I put on a couple of the platters:

So…onward to the new academic year.  My 16th (!) at UF.

Origami Doves

I visited my mom this weekend, and one of the things we did was go over to her church (First Presbyterian of St. Petersburg, FL) so I could see the really cool origami mobile in their sanctuary.   The church building itself is quite beautiful…very simple, mostly white surfaces, modern.

Really beautiful!

Here’s a quick photo of some sort of finished (fired anyway) pendant prototypes:

I’ve been wearing them the last couple of weeks on different cords/chains, trying to figure out what works best.   Can you tell which one I like the best?

Pendant Process

August 12, 2010 2 comments

I’ve been working on some pendants.  They’re a little fussy for me…but I’m having fun so we’ll see how it goes.  The first ones I made with leftover edges of layered/carved slabs I used for other things, but for this batch I made several small slabs with colors and textures with pendant production in mind.  These are still greenware, so the end product will feature brighter colors and shiny surfaces !  (Bad lighting for the photo…sorry…)   I’m trying out different sorts findings and cords to make the necklaces: silver tube bails, snake chain, ball chain, rubber & leather cords, beads for embellishment.  Of course, the possibilities  for  acquiring more  art supplies are endless..likely not a good thing ;->
