Day 590

I sat with my work earlier today, listening to Sigur Ros and trying to drown out the ambient noises. It kinda worked. Wrote some new realizations down, legs fell asleep, took some pictures, realized that it was raining, walked around a bit, and finally saw pieces and installations that I hadn’t seen on Friday.  Looks good, guys. Impressive, even.

I’ll post pictures of my install later. Don’t want to spoil the surprise for anyone who hasn’t been in the gallery. *finger pointing*

Still working on stuff. You’d think that there would be some sort of lull, but nope. Animating and editing those damn paper puppets. Writing on the thesis paper. And making more things out of clay. Hopefully I’ll have one more firing before graduation, just to finish everything. Loading and firing an electric kiln is so much easier than firing my woodfire kiln. Not nearly as fun, but so much easier. There was an idea about naming all the boxes that Charlotte had mentioned a while back. I’m working on that. These bits will somehow be added to the boxes. It’ll make sense later. Thinking on what to do next, is that supposed to be the whole idea?

I’m going to go make stuff.

Day 107


This is what I did this morning, still working hard even with the installation this afternoon and presentations tomorrow. It was cold this morning in the garage, even after having to wrestling Jud outside so I could work without accidentally setting the dog on fire. Now I’m off to school to finish my pieces and take pretty pictures of them. I’m not freaking out over having to talk in front of people, nope nope nope.

Day 58

Really, Snow, really? You’re not supposed to kill my plants. That’s just mean. I only have two of them.

I’m making a mold today for the bronze pour next week. I hadn’t really planned on using bronze, but I do like the greenness of it after it sits for a while in the healthy outside environment. Haven’t used a mold or poured a large amount of molten metal for a while, hopefully this works. Paper metal? We’ll see. I finally get to use my welding equipment. And hammers. And leather jacket. And anvil. I’ll have to remember to drink a large glass of milk afterward, following in the footsteps of the great Don Boyd.
