Porcelain’s First Photos
I have a present for you! Here are a multitude of photos that were taken by my lovely, talented, and exceedingly nice friend, C. She is also my collaborator on the final art show. She has been the one who has been patient and calm throughout, while I alternatively rant and fidget with impatience. Her photography will be on offer at the show. She works in traditional dark room black and white. To make everyone who has any sense insanely covetous, some of her photographs will have some of my pieces in them. A double dose of amazing artistic talent in one piece. Commence cold sweating á la bidders at auction.
To recap- In these photos I am working with a porcelain clay body. It might be the love of my life. At the very least I am ruined for all other clay bodies (I’m totally okay with this. Working with porcelain is like eating really expensive, delicious butter. It’s definitely one of those situations where once you go porcelain…) On to the photos.
I have more photos but I think that what’s already up is enough for you to get a sense of what I do. I used some pottery terms in the descriptions so if there are questions, feel free to ask in the comments (is there a need for me to do a glossary of pottery terms? [I love that I am working under the assumption that people are reading this blog]) I’ll be back in the studio today to finish working on the pieces in the second shot.
In other news, C and I continue to send out feelers for alternative spaces for our show. We have not heard back from anyone in the university’s administration regarding the issue. We remain hopeful (and pessimistic, if you’re me.) Au revoir.
