Hello from quarantine - never mind literally as i typed this my results came back negative !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Last week I was able to accomplish some goals, made three ashtrays goldilocks style - small medium and large. Hoping to bisque and see which size I like best and maybe make more. I also made my sexy shoe vases in small and large - with medium unable to finish at the moment. lol I'll finish it ASAP baby ya boy is covid free.
In other amazing news I sold a piece !!!!!!!!! My piece spit or swallow SOLD BITCH. This is the most someone has ever paid for my work which is cool as fuck ! But I am a bad man, as alex g says (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbrJ9BXOvqU), and did not take quality photos of this piece- only used the light box and my iphone. A valuable lesson has been learned. I should have finished the piece earlier and taken the time to take good photos, but I was running late on making the rug and had to ship it out quickly. I didn't think it needed to arrive a week before the show lol. Anyway I'm taking this as a sign to redo the piece because in all honestly I am obsessed with the mouths, but don't love the body/form of it anyway. Wish i knew who bought it I would love to thank them !
Been working on my powerpoint for my BFA critique on thursday. Interested in hearing what the professors of IUS have to say about my work (since the kids never say anything.)
Oh also, one of pieces was chosen to be in the juried show ! I am feeling fine and fresh and like maybe im onto something here with my new body of work, thinking its time to stop playing with functionality and get back to sculpting. But as I keep saying, December is going to be IT for me. No children haunting the studio, can play deftones loud as fuck and get into it bitch !
Now that I have received the news of being covid free, its time to go back to the studio for me. Also fucking so excited to get to chat with Iren Tete about my work today.
Having not been to the studio this weekend, it made me so grateful for having access. As nice as it was to watch Dune for 5 hours I need to get my ass off the couch and back to making.
Overall, I've had one of those weeks that makes me feel really secure in my work. The world of ceramics can be so intimidating, but it feels nice to get a crumble of recognition. I mean jesus h christ I took my first class summer of 2018 its only 2021 and someone bought a sculpture ? I am in a juried show ? and I felt like I was dying because I couldn't be in the studio ? lol.
