Many things have been happening (understatement?).
Top to bottom:
I may have found resolution for the Nest of Gratitude. A box? There is going to be an open house potluck show at the MFA space this week, so I’d like to show a few nests.
I’m learning about box making from Barb. The best adjective I can think of to apply to box making is “satisfying.”
The lovely view from my studio window.
Jeik and I bought a tiny press together. Right now it is in the bedroom so I can see it when I wake up, and think of all the tiny prints I will make on it with Jeik one day. Not pictured: three cases of type(!).
I’ve been learning about mold making for ceramics in an effort to revise and expand upon the tooth vessel series. Casting and molding reminds me of printmaking, so my intention is to create ceramic work from the perspective of a printmaker (working in an interdisciplinary way, of course). This box contains alginate that I will use to cast teeth, fingers, toes. The side of the box is quite inspirational!
In other news, graduate school is blowing my mind a little bit. We’ve spent a good deal of time questioning and deconstructing what we are doing in our art practices, and what we are doing pursuing an MFA. There’s been a lot of self-reflection, as well as excitement to MAKE.
