Just a short update on the silent auction that’s coming up at the Holiday extravaganza. Since I know of several people who are interested but aren’t in Seattle, I’m going to try and figure out some sort of remote component for the silent auction. It will most likely be something as low tech as email or text messages. If you’re interested in being involved, send me an email and I’ll keep you updated.
On Saturday, December 13th, 2008, Florentia Clayworks will have its second Annual Holiday Sale and Party! This year, we will be doing a single night celebrations, from 7 to 10pm. Come on by for a chance to check out my work in person, meet my studio mates, browse fun art work, eat, drink, and generally enjoy yourselves! We are located just South of the Fremont Bridge, in Seattle, Washington, on 218 Florentia St. Stop on by and have some fun!
As a first this year, I will be doing a silent auction of two of my favorite sculptures. I will donate 40% of the proceeds to charity. Here are the two beasts, and the two charities.
First off is ‘Digger Beast with Ball.” He is one of the best pieces I got out of this last firing. I will be donating 40% of his sale to Child’s Play. Child’s Play is a group that raises games, toys, books, and money for childrens’ hospitals world wide. I figured this playful digging beast would approve of the choice (as long he can keep his ball).
Second is “Discovery.” I have to admit that I often wish I could just keep all of my sculptures myself. I just really like the interaction I’ve capture in the piece. I leave it up to the viewer as to how these two guys will behave, but personally, I picture the big guy sniffing the little one, and maybe being hissed at. Nothing too sinister. However, since real world interaction seldom end up as nonviolently, (especially between countries) I will be donating 40% of his sale to the International Red Cross.
