There never seems to be enough space. Whether it's being jammed into the back seat of the mini cooper, or packed into a dorm room, or overflowing with 2 kids in a NYC apartment -Space seems to be short.
I think that I need to take the otherside of the equation. Too much stuff!
I keep fooling myself that I have some secret storage area for some of the inventory that I hold for shows and such. It's just not there.
This month I am making a promise to myslf to weed out the crap and reorganize the goods in a more space saving way.
Hepl out a crowded potter and buy some more pottery - I need the shelf space:)
BTW - my delicate little tapas plates are available on Etsy.....

I love the before and after. First photo on the left is the plate when it is just glazed and waiting to be fired in the kiln and the others are the finished results. These are hand painted so the detail of the pattern really pops. Worth the time it takes to detail them. Available shortly online and in person.

Something different in upcoming events. I have curated and created a cup installation at our local bookstore/cafe. It is not a ceramic cup thing - but a paper coffee cup thing. Over several months patrons and fellow artsist have decorated cups. These cups will be hung in an installation in the cafe.
The opening reception is in 2 weeks. No pressure. If you are local - please try and come.

It started with a project for my class - the old tripod cup. It can take on a life of its own. Begining with just a decorative cup - it grew - demonstrating the technique of working the slab, joining it up, making the folds and stretching her out.
Then I decided to take to the next level and go a little bigger. What fun.
