Installation Time

Installation day 1 complete.

The penguins are beginning to take shape, with finishing touches to come tomorrow. After an hour of panic and tangled wire, everything began to *swim* along just fine. Mapping them out on a very large sheet of paper really helped to bring it all together. And the kind support of my lovely boyfriend in braving the rather large ladder that gave me chills and made my knees knock..

Tomorrow is another day, filled with achievements and discoveries. Happy happy happy.

Mothers Meeting

Loving these little ladies.. Thinking about where they might be placed in the museum, lots of funny ideas going off in my head, possibilities of comical narrative that may go with them. I can almost hear them chattering away, eyeing up the last piece of cake.

Not Bad for a First Attempt

So, I picked up my test batch of glazed wares. Not bad.. Some crackling on my lady with the boobies but I’m sure with a bit of investigating I can get to the bottom of it.

Handed in a few more, with new colours too boot! Will pick up on Monday and we shall see what surprises they bring.

Happy Happy.

Clay Clay Clay

Had a busy weekend, messing about with clay. Was that invested that my fingertips went all squidgy and crinkly like I’d been in the bath for five hours! Heres a quick peek of whats to come…

 

Looking forward to my ceramics session with David William Sampson at Long Eaton Art Rooms this evening. Hoping to come away with a very busy brain! http://www.davidwilliamsampson.com/
