This summer Is fast on its way out the door and that realization has kicking me into gear. So far this summer I have been working on commissions, carving vases, and getting my fill of silk screening among other things, so strap in for an update!
I just finished a two sets of 12 dishes for Chris Lorenz at Taste, so now they have left the nest and are the backdrop for some amazing food!
I started the summer by starting on this set of dishes, sewing away my free time, and organizing all the notes i took last semester in my sketch book.
This summer I also finished my first dress, which lead me into the excitement of more sewing projects to come, including skirts,and ringmaster pants.
seeing the opportunity to explore fabrics further, I applied for the Contextural Fibre Residency that takes place at ACAD, and to my joy I was accepted for the three month residency. Which means I get my own studio space and free reign of the studios in the fibre department!
I've had lots of ideas coming to mind of things I could print, however, I started fleshing out an idea that has been at the back of my mind for quite a while.
I knew that this summer I had a lot of projects that I wanted to work on, including a set of carved pots, so I started throwing steadily larger pieces , and practicing my carving on them.
Once the first set was fired, I experimented with some of the glazes that the studio had to offer, and I plan to further explore with the next set of pots, which are much bigger than the first set.
If you would like to purchase any of these pots, send me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org
I am currently making props and printing patches for a story surrounding a gang and their rival. The props will be shown through photographs that will resemble film stills of a film that never existed.
This project will focus on gang culture, youth rebellion, and the absurdity that follows. Some of the props and branding will include made up products like Charades Candy Cigarettes, Yellow Belly Root Beer, Jennifer H's Quality Apple Juice, and Travesty All-Stars Sneakers. Temporary tattoos will also be making an appearance.
If you want to join my gang, drop me a line at email@example.com I would love to have your help!
Also, Thank you to all those who follow my many social media accounts, your comments and likes are always an encouragement to me.
