A Little Taste of What is To Come...

I hope.
I am pleased to show you some of what I have been developing in the studio.
I am developing new work in more of a sculptural direction.
I am closing forms and have been experimenting with glass additions as well.
Here is a taste of what is to come...

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...
