Just kidding. Second billing is fine, as long as it is alphabetical. Ha Ha. Well this is some of our new work. I have been focusing on hand built functional work with somewhat random surfaces, while Melissa has been slip casting and painting for hours on each piece. Good times they are. I think this card is for a show we are submitting for in a few months, we shall see. I might be able to see if a flicker site is around...http://bit.ly/cYqpZd .
I am not to sure where this line of pottery is going. For the first time I am building pots like I build sculptures. Mostly with coils and out of an earthenware body. This started a few weeks ago, and so far I think they are the best pots I have made. Luckily, it should go that way. Since starting at SPCC I have tried to focus more on functional ware. Three years of graduate school taught me that I loved making sculpture and growing a concept, but making pots is what brought me to the medium, passion as they call it. One of my first goals was to throw pots on the wheel that did not look wheel thrown at first glance. After awhile I realized that my proficiency at wheel throwing was holding me back. I was making things to fast, not enough care was being taken. Now, hand building each pot slows the process down to almost a snails pace. So far people seem to be favorable about the pieces.
