I spent a full day in my studio today, trying to get back into some sort of routine. I couldn't even remember where things were. I made a few things, mostly messed around putting shell sprigs on things. I just have to get this out of my system before I can get serious I think. I have had this oval bisque mold since the days of teaching hand building and never used it. I got it out today and made this oval dish with some shell sprigs, kinda nice, but it will want to be glazed and I will not want to glaze it. Maybe a non functional terra sig, that will make it basically a useless item, hmm.... now that I look at it in this photo, I think I might already be over the shell thing. Maybe, maybe not. Maine keeps sneaking into my brain!
I also worked on some new texture for my barns. I have decided to make some without a cut out door, just the suggestion of one and no windows, no feet. That way maybe people will stop thinking they are birdhouses or the newest one- it could go in an aquarium for fish to swim through...... I really don't take offense to any of these suggestions, it's just that they aren't cheap, they are intended to be a sculpture. Do you really want to pay $100 for a barn just so a bird or a fish can shit on it?
