Okay, here is proof that I threw pots in my home "studio" today.
....and of course, TORCH IT!
Also, as promised, here are a couple of pics of my textured slab stash.
These are carved slabs. I created the textures myself using carving tools, ribs, or even other bisque stamps I had made. Most of these slabs are thicker and have patterns on both sides. I love TEXTURE! I have thought a lot about what texture is really about for me, and I think it is really a reflection of how super sensitively I live life. I don't mean sensitive sense of touch really, but sensitive emotional connections. I tend to live my life with nerves exposed. This has always been the case especially as a band director and musician, but still so as just a person. So art does reflect life, even before I realized that that is what I was about.
Now that I have mentioned my "home studio" a couple of times here, I think it is time for true confessions. Here are some photos of all of my work spaces in their glorious reality.
Yes, God, today was a good day. Thank you, Sir, may I have another?
