I do hope that this month you will take the time to visit some galleries and see all the great art in Ft Worth/Dallas Metroplex. I am super proud to announce that this piece will be on display from March 5-29 at the Ft Worth Community Arts Center in the BEST OF TEXAS CLAY show. There will be a lot of exciting ceramic art there for you to see. And the closing reception is on March 26th 5-9pm- Ft Worth’s long established Gallery Night. I will be there and would love to meet you all!
I told myself I was done making pieces for my spring shows. I am ready well in advance but I just cannot stay out the studio (despite all the non-studio projects I could tackle: painting the walls? unpacking the boxes that are STILL in rooms and I certainly won’t admit how long I have lived here) It seems I have unleashed a little monster in me that wants to create. And this is all probably because I told myself to stop and take it easy for a week!
I even did the techie side of business stuff in an attempt to “keep busy”. I updated my website and added new items to my Etsy store but I am back in the studio making more! More what? Well, new trays with divisions- perfect for carrots, celery, pickles, olives etc. And what else? The revised version of my wall hanging “quilted” pieces. I am still very excited about these despite some setbacks from v1. And honestly, I don’t know what else I might make this week- sometimes I have a plan but most of the time…well, I don’t! I am lucky that this has worked for me so far.
AND I am happy that I also have two custom sets of dishes that I am hard at work on!
But to tide you over until the next glaze load here are some items from load #2 last week.
