Nesting

20130309-222946.jpg
I’m working on the third nest, the nest of transformation, composed of an old old print from when I was first learning about intaglio. It will have a ceramic base to sit on.

My teacher told me that it is possible to fire the ceramic base with the nest on it, and the burnt up nest will leave a mark on the ceramic piece. I’m really interested in pursuing this idea, but unfortunately I won’t be able to do this in the school kiln (we have to minimize the amount of combustible material that goes in), so I’ll have to find another kiln to use. Hm. But what a moving idea, right? A powerful exercise in letting go.

Weaving

You guys. I just can’t stop weaving paper. I thought I was done, but now I’m making a new little etching, and it would just be too easy (/uninteresting?) to print it on a regular, unadulterated sheet of paper. Hmph.

In other news, happy 2013! Wishing you all kinds of happiness, growth, and abundance this year!

Here are some scans from a recent book: “iamfeelingsomanyfeelings (gratitude), typewriter, Polaroids, etching, map, ticket, thread, 8 5/8 x 7 1/4”, 2012.

If you can’t tell, lately I’ve been in the mood to type on the typewriter and sew and weave bits of (sentimental) trash.

 

…Maybe it’s time to start drawing again.
