I finally got around to creating some new pieces. It helps that a friend has a barn full of free scrap lumber. Both of these pieces are currently at the Matter Gallery in Olympia.
Ages ago I did a ceramic crow mask/ ceremonial kind of thing. It was in a gallery for a long time and recently the gallery changed hands and I got kicked out. So I brought a box full of stuff (art) home. The interesting thing is, that for me, it’s not art anymore. It’s salvage. If I hang on to anything too long, I eventually take it apart and make something else out of it. That being said, here’s a before and after of the crow mask.
Just finished my first consigned mask. It’s nice to know something is already sold while you’re making it. I just picked up a load of my stuff at a gallery in Tacoma that changed hands and then kicked me out. Ouch! I’ll be listing most of it on etsy and some of it I’ll be taking apart and reassembling into something else.
Just finished working on a tree mask which I will be adding to my Etsy shop tomorrow as soon as I get some better pics. My lesson on this one was change blades in the utility knife more often. Blades are cheap. I’m trying to come up with some designs that I haven’t seen all over the place, although, I have to admit I enjoy making leaf masks as much as the next guy. I’m done with copper clay until I order some more so I’ll probably make more mask for awhile. If I could only stay focused on one thing….
