I’m back from my Pittsburgh trip, which went very well! I’m sorting through the photos from my show there, and will put together a post on it later this week. However, I wanted to get this info out in the mean time.
Friday is the first of August, which means our studio will be open for the Fremont First Friday Art Walk. From 6 to 9pm, feel free to stop by, drink some wine, eat some snacks, and peruse the art work. If I have time, I might even make a cake for people to eat. I’ll have a few pieces from my most recent batch of work there, along with work by everyone else in the studio.
We are at 218 Florentia St, Seattle WA – just on the south side of the Fremont bridge. Come take a look if you’re in the area!
The opening for the Society for contemporary crafts is tonight! I’ve stopped by the gallery a few times in the past couple days and everything looks really really awesome. I’m really looking forward to tonight!
Also, it’s looking like Saturday will be a lot of fun also. I’ll be doing a demonstration from noon to two, and I think Toby Fraley might also. Feel free to stop by. What with the strip district being its hoppin’ self, thing should be pretty awesome.
Before this last firing, I filmed all the steps in sculpting one set of beasts. I’ve been calling it “Trio”, but in some ways it’s also “Cuddle” #2. I liked the beasts I made for “cuddle” and wanted to see a larger arrangement of them. It was surprisingly hard to figure out how to make the three fit together. Anyway, here’s the timelapse video fully tracking them from beginning to end.
I really like arranging my beasts in groups. And this sort of lumpy, toothy form really appeals to me. For a bit, I’ve been meaning to make a pile of 10 or 20 guys. Maybe next firing I’ll have time.
I tend to take a fairly large number of photos. When I recently broke my year old camera, I’d taken 9000 photos with and it had been starting to wear out. To be fair, that’s including my art documentation, a trip to asia, and my habit of taking 10 photos of every shot I want to capture. Regardless of all that, it means I spend a fair amount of time sorting through photos. This weekend, I’ve been catching up on some of the random photos for the last few months, and uploading the best up to flickr. I still have a lot to go, but this is my favorite for the evening.
Coming up in late July, I’m going to be having a show at the Society for Contemporary Craft in Pittsburgh, PA. Joshua Longo, Toby Fraley, and myself will be the features artist in the SCC’s shop. A lot of my new work will be there, and I’ll be flying in from Seattle for the opening. I’m pretty excited about it. It’s a great place, and I’m really like both Joshua and Toby’s work. Here’s the details for the opening reception
Opening night reception!
