Back in the Studio

Posted on: November 14, 2010

After a bit of a break from being able to get into the studio when I wanted to, I have been heading back more regularly.

I have thrown another round of teabowls, these ones to looks more like a certain one that I swapped with someone who would like another. I think a couple of them just might work. It is hard for me to force the clay into something as I am usually more natural with it, but I think based on the pictures I have of the other one, and how I remember it that a couple of the ones I have recently thrown and trimmed will work out well.  I have included pictures of the last batch of teabowls below.

I have also been sketching out some shapes for a new large slab/coil sculpture. I want to play with some ideas of openess, in the form of some open and closed off holes in the piece, a larger opening encircling a smaller one, etc. This will be a good project in the coming months when the studio is more empty and I can have the whole place to myself 🙂 I am selfish a bit when it comes to the studio 😉

There is also another carving project I have been working on that is turning out nicely, but I would like to get more carved away before photographing it. A few finished projects should be on etsy soon so keep checking!

Here is one of the playlists I listened to the other day in the studio
