In the meantime I have been making some baby head cups using all the old ass baby doll head molds. My favorite is the temples permission red. I made the folks tea for the wood firing.
I honestly want to not talk about the wood firing I was very upset when everyone forgot about me.
But anyway !!! I finally fired my piece in big bailey !
Here is proof of me slaying with the little (okay actually big) sculpture I made. This was before I did a shit ton of sanding which i forgot to take a picture of lol.
I did another little shadowing moment at the speed. It was a fun day to learn better practices around packing work. They were super sweet I came in to "help" move the huge Rodin sculpture, but the head prep was out sick. I stayed anyway and spent a solid 8 hour day with the art handlers. I got to watch them unbox a crate of two paintings, move some work around out of storage, pack a few paintings. It was really cool to see what a normal day might look like. and then Mike brought me donuts, I think they felt bad that I was there for free lol.
This week was the classic annual juried fine arts student show !
another slay for the ceramics department ! The dirt bags look like they are being held against their will in this photo which really is hilarious to me.
totally honored to win best in show for my piece committed. I was pretty shocked to win real life money for my art who knew you could actually earn cash for art making !
In all seriousness it meant a lot to me to win this prize. Its especially funny since cat cox was the juror. this piece is obviously about my ex and he hated her ! so to me its a special win that she gave me this prize money and picked not one not two but three of my pieces of art.
This was my second day/week of art handling at KMAC. This time we actually installed work ! This is on the third floor of the museum and it is all Noel Anderson's work.
The cool red / colored piece is the one that I personally helped in hanging ! It was really cool to get to work with the artist there, he was really nice and laid back. We all got to unpack his work and lay them out and then we watched him and the curator figure out where everything is going to be installed.
The other exciting aspect of my life is that I FINALLY finished making all of my bowls and they are in the Speed Museum store !
A bit of a slay to get paid up front I truly do not care whether or not they sell because i got my money.
