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 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!
so i started this semester with my white clay but i kept thinking about how i wanted to try working with earthenware. with a lack of epk it was like fate, so i made myself a small batch of earthenware clay to make some pots. so far i enjoy throwing with it much better than the white clay i was using at cone five. i’m not sure what will happen when i start surfacing my work but so far so good!
so instead of packing to head back to portland in the morning i’ve been working on printmaking some more….. so i made this screen using the drawing fluid rather than burning an image into emulsion. it definitely works better with bolder areas and lines, though some of my fine lines did come out. i need to work on the process and understanding of the materials but i feel pretty good about do this for the first time and on my own! i also need to figure out how much it’ll differ when i use underglazes on news print instead of fabric ink on fabric!
i also got back the photos i had developed from when i was at watershed last spring for pre-session.
so for the past few days Dot and myself have been trying to figure out screen printing. something is going wrong though… day one was better than day two when we tried making a different screen. it’s trickier than i thought it’d be. anyone have an experience with screen printing//printing on clay//?
mostly i think it’s just issues with our screen?
