Well rather than have a full productive day in the studio today, I spent the day shoveling out a path to my studio and unearthing my car from the surrounding 3 foot snow drifts, only to have to repeat said shoveling again this evening. It's Canada and it's February and we're all too tough to just give up and declare snow days so there you have it. We had to shovel in order to get the cars out to get to work tomorrow morning. Good news is, it's likely going to continue to snow a good 10 cm more overnight....how is any of this relevant to ceramics? Well it is my hope that someone, anyone out there might be so kind hearted as to offer me a job somewhere, anywhere other than here...
Okay on a more serious note I've realized that what goes around truly does come back around. Looking at some of the functional tests I've been playing with lately I suddenly was reminded of a piece I made quite a few years ago in grad school, which at the time turned into a dead end, but go figure it's rearing it's head again.
back to 2003:
currently in the studio:
Similarities, yup. Interesting. So either I'm a one trick pony or there was something there the first time and I gave up too quickly...well see where it goes this time.
