Gettin there

Things are getting so busy in the studio ! I'm almost done with my piece for the BFA show, & am working on a huge bottle project for my mold making class that is turning into an entire exhibition worth of objects. I still don't have a camera, so I've been snapping some really awful pictures of the things around the studio !

These are a bunch of cups I was too uninterested in to put handles on, so I glazed them in really thick layers of studio glaze, which turned out mostly nonfunctional & really gross. I made some really great new textures & color combinations I can't wait to try out on some other things in the next couple months !

 I finally got a bunch of bottles & my BFA pieces bisques the other day, but this kiln was actually the rudest when we started him up. I was so scared we weren't gonna get one of the burners to work, because I feel like that's exactly the luck you get doing things so close to a deadline.

I've been working through some feelings, or the ideas of feelings, with the collection of slip cast bottles I'm making which is a lot more of an undertaking than I realized until I put these 25 bottles on my table last night.

 & this is the whole thing ! I'm excited to start new projects after this week is over !!!!


This semester, Im taking a mold making class. So far, I've made 4 bottle molds & a goofy cat. I'm really starting to enjoy the process & have been thinking of so many things to make 100 of.

 I really love how these forms are casting & am having so much fun altering them, plus I've gotten up to producing 12 bottles a day while I'm working on other things.

 Now that i have so many, I get to really play around with what I want them to look like. Hint: I have literally no idea yet !

& then there's my first kiln of the semester 

 But actually, I moved into a new studio & am already outta space ! Things are happening !

I've been really working on getting this ridiculous piece done for the BFA show next month, & I'm finally done sculpting everything ! I lost my phone a couple weeks ago, so I haven't gotten to really show anyone what I've been up to, so I feel like this is probably a good spot to throw everything.

I broke the original sculpture bringing it to school the first week of class, but I kept the base to test (I won't have time though oops). I ended up rebuilding the entire thing a lot larger & reconsidered a lot of the design. 

I've broken the face so many times since I decided I wanted to be able to use this puppy after the show.  Please note that I'm obsessed with artist's tape hehe.

So basically this is it; I think it's really funny, & there's another piece that sits on top as the hair to hold a plant. Also this cat has the sweetest little butthole hehehehehehe. I can't wait to fire these guys !
