this past first friday in putnam, ct sawmill pottery set up a couple of wheels on the street where i did throwing demos with a couple other members of the studio! it was a really great time. i hadn’t thrown in a while but it was fun to be on the street making pots, talking to people from the community and even working with some children to throw pots and encourage their interest in the kids summer clay camp programs that sawmill offers!
it’s weird to not be writing school papers or doing studio work. i’ll be back to writing papers and researching come august though. soon i’ll return to MECA to continue my education in teaching art education! for now i’m spending my summer days with my cats, and trying to be crafty by crocheting and sewing. i’ve also been making sure to photograph colors, textures, forms and patterns that stand out to me. (you can see more by following my instagram: lindseydemuth) i was also able to attend a day of demos at the sprinkler factory in worcester, mass which was really sweet! aysha peltz and todd wahlstrom did some really great demos and it only made me want to make my own work and make it better!
I’m all graduated from MECA now! Here are a few photos taken from the MECA Thesis website.
For the June First Friday I will be giving an artist talk and having a gallery opening at Sawmill Pottery in Putnam, Connecticut! Y’all should stop by and check it out if you’re in the area! My talk will start for 7:30 and I’ll present about where my work has come from and where I am heading next. Come celebrate with me and see some work by myself and other local artists at Sawmill and in the local galleries!

i’ve made over 25 platters. i have 20 final platters to display, if i chose to display them all. some of them are still unfinished. tonight i decided to hang 11 of my finished platters in an attempt to start mapping out my display.
i was finally assigned a thesis location. i have a great wall and i’m ready to continue making work to fill it. i have a lot of work left to do but i’ll get it done!
i unloaded my first 04 glaze kiln and i’m pretty okay with my results! some of my underglaze colors came out different from what i planned but i’m pretty happy about it!
