The air-conditioner is broken and it's about a million degrees in here. This afternoon I'm gonna try and buck up and sweat buckets as I cut some metal.
I've been really busy recently, in addition to my usual schedule of running around and having fun I also got a job (gasp!). It's alright though, I'm working as a visual merchandiser which is basically just a fancy way of saying I play dress up with mannequins and arrange things in color order all day long. Plus there are other perks of the job (see photo below).
Can you believe they were gonna throw these away!? Needless to say I snatched them, spray-painted them, and hung them above my workbench. I'm sure they'll appear in future jewelry photographs.
Polyhedron maquette for ANOTHER teapot (still need to add on the spout and handle). The Teapot Redefined 2010 is fast approaching, so I need to get in the spirit and bang this guy out.
This is upside-down, but it a bristol maquette for a vessel I have planned. I might pierce the plates, but I could take it to another level and chase them, enamel them, and then stitch them together. That would be insane.
Other things on my plate:
-Going to California for a week to hang out and visit graduate schools (applications are due this winter, holy cow!) More specifically the MFA programs at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco and San Diego State University. So excited.
-Planning a collaboration with Tamara for Co:Operation Tableware. Tamara is seriously one of the most talented and productive artists I've ever met, so I am very excited to make something awesome with her!
