CENTERFOLD!!!!













...in The Crafts Report...
BUT...
STILL...
A CENTERFOLD...
I mean... any other sort of Centerfold is not looking likely at this point...
and ...
well...
it really wasn't a goal for me...
so...
CENTERFOLD!!!!

Thanks to Stephanie at The Crafts Report 
(via Bridgette Martin at crafthaus)
APRIL 2014 issue!

What is going on... Revisited...

















Some of the greenware that is in the bisque kiln right now... and now I have the chocolate clay going on in wet next to wet white at the same time... DANGER of contamination Will Rodgers!!!!
This new work is focused on sculptural form and there are subtle things I am trying to "say"...
No protests... but  feelings and relationship stuff...
It is ok with me if I am talking to myself right now...
It is OK...

WHAT IF....

Artist/ Creatives...
Some interesting questions came up and I am very curious what your answers are...

IF money was not an issue...(to support you, etc)...

What would your art be like?
Would you continue to make art?
Would it change your focus?
What drives you to make your art?

ANY AND ALL ANSWERS are very appreciated...
 I may share in an upcoming (anonymous) blog post...
You can message me directly if uncomfortable with this forum.

This gentleman comes to mind...

Getting out there and the PODCAST down-low!

Check it out!
I am highlighted on THIS blog called "It's Drool Worthy!"
Very fun little shout out!
Check out some of her other posts too!
Very fun.














Also... I have 2 cups juried into the
 Gulf Coast State College Amelia Center Gallery 's 
 Annual Cup Show: 
Form and Function juried by ceramic artist Ben Carter.
Ben's Blog and Podcast  is really great... The Tales of a Red Clay Rambler...
He has great interviews with potters, ceramic artists and other creative minds.
It is both informative and inspiring!













While we are on the subject of PODCAST's... I also LOVE and wait for 
each new episode of the Brian R. Jonescast for another take on the 
ceramic art scene and the like. I am starting to come up with a lot of ideas 
on starting my own podcast... At this point it is really about a lack of time!

I even took on the challenge of TEACHING a 7 week 
Thursday Morning Adult Pottery Class at 
The Monmouth County Parks System's Creative Arts Center...
This is where I started learning about clay and I am both excited and nervous 
as I have not been a teacher because I am a bit PETRIFIED!
That said... I have been very inspired to take the plunge
in many areas of my life lately...

The aforementioned podcast interviews and several others 
have lit the fire under my but...
These are some other GREAT ones:
The Good Life Project
On Being with Krista Tippet
Sounds True Insights At The Edge with Tami Simon
They are all really interesting to me and many times insightful!
I often find new books to read or listen to after listening to these interviews...
as well as websites and products to explore...
especially other podcasts to follow from info on these podcasts...
