The sun is shining! Happy June 1!
A lot has transpired the past few months while I was in hibernation…. With the kiln in winter mode, the cold months were a time for a fun project-the annual Fakes and Forgeries show at Spring Bull Gallery in Newport…my entry was a clay replica of “The Great Wave” by Mr. Hokusai After the show opening, I noticed a red dot and a lovely gray “most original” ribbon on my piece…happy clay lady. March was my annual MN visit for quality mother/daughter time….and a chance to shop antique malls for vintage lace (happily I hit the mother lode!) March also began my enrollment in a class at South County Art Association taught by the clay hand building guru of RI, Anna Highsmith.. Perfecting techniques, exploring, learning, practicing, and playing gave me a change to create new forms and strengthen previous designs, all perfect for vintage lace imprint….very happy with new shapes and ideas….
Which brings me to June! June finds me cleaning, purging, and getting ready for my summer production mode of pottery for fairs this fall…. I will have a table of test pieces, seconds, and other items that need a new home, (i.e. yours) at the Community yard, art, and craft sale at the Portsmouth Arts Guild , Saturday, June 10 from 9 to 3…. All part of my clay cycle–making room for new clay fun and inventory….enjoy this sunshine!
