Now is the time to prepare for empty bowls !
It was only myself, Max, and Sarah. I used my old shitty bowl molds to do coil-built baby bowls and I think I'm going to end up just using every color of slip, firing to cone 6 with clear glaze.
The next class I made two more little guys. I have been referring to this collection of bowls as juvenile delinquents. They have a bizarre energy, too thick to be comfortable, too small to be useful, the perfect size and shape to be annoying as fuck to the user.
Truly, this week I spent my mental energy figuring out my performance art idea. After our critique moment I felt ready to actualize my concepts, but I needed to really sit with myself and visualize what I want. I also reached out to bestie Tiffany for a moment of video next week, which I am excited for ! The main conclusion that I've come to is that I want to throw my body through one of the ceramic voids that I made. I want two friends to be holding the void for me. One camera on a tripod. I will "perform" for as long as physically possible. I want to completely exhaust myself and my friends (sorry to max and simon.) I want to record my breath for the audio component. I want to then take the piece, place it on the wall and project the video into it. Nervous to be nude, but I think its needed to convey a sense of vulnerability / rawness.
