I haven’t shared much lately, because I’m getting used to the electric wheel…here’s a quick peek into the studio. Hope you all have a great weekend!
I tried something a little different during today’s facebook live stream: multi cameras
The LIVE stream had two cameras at once-one side view, one overhead view. Hopefully watching the two different angles help get an idea of what the hands are doing when i throw pottery on the wheel.
Here’s a sped up playback of one of the pots I threw, to give you an idea of what it looked like.
Thanks again to those who joined me during the live stream!
I usually speed up videos of me working (because the process takes so long-and attention spans) but challenged myself to NOT speed anything up; instead, edit in a way that tells the story of decorating a porcelain cup WHILE keeping it under a minute in length. Hope you all are staying warm and enjoying the snow (if you were lucky enough to get some) have a great weekend!
A sped up play back from part of yesterday’s live Facebook video while i was setting the studio up. If you missed the live feed, i also gave my mom and dad a “virtual” walkthrough tour of the display. Technology sure is nice, since we couldnt visit in person this fall.
Yesterday, i made a live Facebook video while working in the clay studio. The magic of live is that we are together at the same moment. 2+ hour replays don’t make sense, once it’s over, so i took the video down.
I DID mix some of the highlights while carving
If you like Hanging out live, look out for another one today while i set my exhibit up at the Pendleton art center.
I’ve wanted to try to make an animation ever since my favorite app Procreate introduced animation tools. Yesterday, i was brave and gave buddy a long overdue haircut…i decided to capture the moment with this!
Have a great day!
Wanted to check in with you all to let you know I’ve been working hard in the studio.
It’s KILLING ME to have a group of new oil paintings and not be able to show them off (I’ll unveil them All Sept 24th). Here’s a little update on my side project: porcelain. Have a great day!
I recently did this, and had to re-carve the whole block a second time. The good news is that it looks even better after the second time around AND you can support my work by visiting my website to add one of these note cards to your collection (or send to a friend–it includes an envelope if you want to surprise someone with snail mail)
Hi Everybody! I have been carving my first batch of porcelain cups; using RED colored slip. To honor Kentucky’s state bird, the cardinal. This video shows how the process works.
Stay tuned to see how they look after going through the kiln. Thanks for everyone for watching, your encouragement and support! I’m so happy to be back in the clay studio!
I recently threw some pots after a long break from pottery. Today I am going to trim them; a fun process. This is when the pot really takes it form.
These videos were originally 15 minute ‘stories’ that i put together into one video.
