I hope everyone has been enjoying the Holiday Season!
I hope you can join me at my studio on Final Friday, December 28 from 6 to 10 pm or on Saturday December 9 from 11 am to 3 pm, at the Pendleton Art Center.
For those of you that were unable to see my show at The Carnegie Visual and Performing Arts Center, I will be displaying those new pieces of sculpture in my studio. There are fourteen pieces in all. These are the first finished pieces in my new body of work called “Balance” and are part of the pieces that I am creating for my Cincinnati Art Ambassador Fellowship.
On both Friday evening and Saturday afternoon, I will be making miniature clay books in my studio. These books will be used in future pieces.
When my studio was open last month, I had a couple of kids watch me make clay books. Afterwards, I invited them to make one of their own. They had a great time and enjoyed the process. An idea was born as I looked at their finished books….What if I had everyone who visited my studio, over the next six months of my fellowship, make a miniature clay book? What if I was able to display all those books as part of a larger sculptural piece? I got excited with all the possibilities of what the piece might look like, and how it might be displayed.
That being the case, I would like to invite you to my studio to make a miniature clay book that will become part of a larger piece of sculpture. I will have a dedicated work table set up in my studio and anyone who would like to make a book is welcome to do so. Come by yourself or bring friends and family. It doesn’t take long…a short book making demo and about 10 or 20 minutes of your time. I will provide the clay and tools.
I look forward to seeing you!
