I opened my kiln yesterday, and made this super short animated video to celebrating the event!

Since Dec 15th, I’ve been logged out of social media. I miss my friends, but the break has been really good for me. If you want to say hi, please don’t be shy about using the comment button below, I’m starving to hear from you all and promise to reply!
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!
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)
