I keep hearing reports from Lauren about how things are going in the studio. This is my plea to you all to keep me posted about what is happening there! Tyler, I want to see travel images. Mathew, I NEED to see an image of you on your motorcycle cross-country trip next to an image of you on your beloved scooter. Linda, I hear you made some good work while you were at the Ranch? SHARE! Plus, newbies, I want to find out who and how you are! Get those two girls their blogger id's so we can get to know each other! To do my part, I will give you a short and sweet update about what Oliver and I are up to here in VT (see glorious photo). I am now set up in my studio, which is turning out to be fantastic. The studio itself is 1100 sq ft but there is a 400 sq ft storage area attached! It is $300 a month--aka affordable. I am looking for a studio mate, so if anyone knows of a ceramic person who might want to share, help a girl out! It would be $150 a month plus electric and heat. Oliver is busy building us a small 12' x 24' cabin and in the mean time we are camped out in my parents guest Yurt. I recently found out I am a semi-finalist for the Kohler residency and I got a Solo show at the Clay Studio in 2009. Look for my interviews with Christa Assad, Ayumi Horie, our own Jeanne Quinn and Sanam Emami in the oct/nov issue of American Craft Mag. Plus, i hear that there will be a review of my show at Vertigo in the next issue of Ceramics Monthly. Be in touch!
I wanted to share the news with you all-- Grace at design*sponge just did a post of my MFA show today! Very exciting for me as you all know I am a bit of a design*sponge junky. These are the images she posted:
When I was in LA for the Scripps show, Tom Muller, Christian Tedeschi, Nikki and I spent an afternoon gallery-hopping . . . the best thing we saw was Diane Landry's show at Solway Jones. The installation was poetic and odd and made you feel all of the tragedy of the world using umbrellas and harmonicas-- I'm not kidding. Check out a video of the piece on her website:
