work for a law firm in progress

states of greenwear

the rosette piece

the cat that really wants to sleep on and break the rosette piece.
 working on taking off the base to make them lower... experiment - also trying them in white clay first  - we shall see

the vertical piece - that i'm not in love with - I'll make a new one

I have this one done - I was going to send it somewhere - but because of how low it is - just a little touch up

363 of No - not much on the applying front - more kiln explosions

so I realized there is no way I'll get this project done without more shelves and stiltz.

here's a greenwear piece I like

this did not blow up (lucky me)
I will be replacing the rest tonight.

made lots of blank tiles last night. 

and went t the arboritum - will post picture soon.

day 364-3 of no

Great day teaching
never ending days in the studio

realized on poor Ben's 30th birthday how grtesque I've become
"Making it be" which i haven't been - has been allowing me to eat and drink mself into this state of ish,,,,,
and I mean yuck.  very very very yuck - I won't even turn around for the 3 rippples of celluight I use to fear
now - it's everything.  every inch of myeslf

oh well
time to get down to work
and so much of t.  Tonight I finshed u at 3:09am - so i can be bright and bushy at 8am
good times
need to load the kiln before that and need new shelves and posts to do the impossible before that.

fingers crossed

best and only thing out of the kiln today was acid humming bird

365 days of NO - learning to take the art of regection as part of the science of getting yourself out there

The rules
- I need to apply to a show everyday.  in the case of emergency - i can make it up the next day

-  I will take my physical health as seriously as i take this project.  I've gained weight, my skins a wreck, I feel like crap honestly because of all the stress - the summer from hell, a SERIOUS stab in the back by my former mentor that broke my heart, the death of my dearest friends Vickers, and 2 next door neighbors - it feels like death is sitting too close to me on the bus and trying to get closer.  I've gotten fat, ugly and tired
don't believe me?
don't make me take a picture of my legs for you

I need to take care of myself better.

3)  The REAL goal of all of this is to get acceptance letters. 


but here's where I keep track:

9/16/10 - THE JEROME:  a show I've been applying for since I was 18.
this is a definite NO for sure. 
good place to start.

so here's what I'm sending  (reverse order)
fingers crossed
