I am taking this fall off...no ceramics class! I'll work on my own with clay out in the leaky old greenhouse. I am inspired by my fellow ceramic artist at Big Ocean Blue and not too distant neighbor, she is building her own small ceramic studio on her property. I feel like cleaning up my space and really making it useable and keep it like a studio instead of the place I work and stash stuff!
List junkie says:
1. Clean "studio"
2. Buy clay and supplies
3. Get ahold of my weaving teacher to help me plan my jacket and learn to double weave and make (or follow) a design.
4. Plan piece for competition in the spring.
5. Call my sisters, call Joe before he moves.
My sister asked for one of my tiles so I wandered down to Sanchez Art Center to take a pic of "the wall" so she could see which ones have sold. There was some sort of controversy in front of my space. What in the world could be happening I wondered? I casually strolled past and couldn't figure it out, I examined the other art; throroughly enjoying myself, stolled past again, the controversy continued. I went into the other wing and then returned and took a pic of the wall, the couple there told me that they reserved during the special patron night (before the opening) 3 of those tiles and 2 were sold to other people now. So, that was it...how maddening that must be! When I told them that I was the artist, they were so pleased to meet me and I them! The long and the short of it is that I am going to make them replacement tiles, similar to the ones they reserved. Win - win. Double win for me. I am still blown away by the whole thing, I've sold about 20; all I can say is, "Wow". Happy, happy, joy, joy!
The tile shown is one I will re-produce, not exactly but one very similar.
