Show preview

My show at the NC Craft Center in Carrboro opens on Sunday with a reception on May 13. Hope to see lots of you there on the 13th! It will be the Friday Artwalk so lots of galleries will have a party going on. Here is a preview of some of the things I have been making for the show. I have a good selection of barns
some Raku bowls that turned out nicely
some Raku barns
some little wall tiles in case your budget is tight, I want to have something for everyone to afford
and a couple of empty nest inspired pieces. This is a new direction I'm looking at so I hope to be exploring this more in the coming months. I'm very excited about this. I love my barns but I am feeling an itch to move forward, get bigger, more surface interest, more mixed media.
I love the work I am making right now, but I have made it, stained it, fired it, glazed it, fired it again, washed it, priced it, inventoried it and packed it. Sick of it now! Time for all of it to find new homes so come on out, the barns go quickly but I hope to be making more throughout the month to replenish the stock. If you want one and they all get sold, I can still make you one, just let me know.

Tracey Broome said...

Hi Tracey - new to your blog.. your work is beautiful, I love the barns, and love the texture on the "Empty Nest" piece. I think I popped in once a long time ago when you were building the studio - great to see what you did with it! Especially the wonderful detail over the door.

I just received a grant to build a new studio/workshop space. A lot of money, but not so much that I can build something architecturally interesting, so I am relying on my creativity to add the magical, inspiring details that will make the space come alive.... Its nice to see what others do to achieve that! Good luck at the show.... I'm too far away, or I'd come visit....

TRACEY!!! your new work looks beyond FAB! No more complaining from you girl -just go get those sales and with work like that it will hit them over the head. Wow. I can sense you needing to move on -new inspirations and change are filling your studio air :o) don't hold back I want to see MORE!

Wide brim, smaller diameter and sorta chunky/sturdy looking foot with an angled edge; I really like the shape of your raku bowls. I also love the texture in the last photo of the empty nest piece, but it all looks like really great work.

The barns and bowls are looking great, I'm sure you'll do well. I wish I could come up to the show but I have my own that weekend. Best of luck to you.
