Saturday I threw the last 2 vessels of the series. They will be picked up on Wednesday or Thursday to finish up for next Sat. Not going to be doing anything on Halloweenie so I might as well finish those two.
Joey came with me to the studio on Sat which was pretty interesting. I knew that he wanted to see me throw for a while now. Thing is he spent more time talking to other people than paying attention. I had intended to only throw those 2 pieces. I started to throw one and when he did finally pay attention I was done. Takes anywhere from 5-15 to minutes throw. If it’s a good days it’s more on the 5 minutes side and Sat was a good day. Some to think of it, I still have not had a bad day since I started up these past few weeks. I don’t want to jinx it so no more writings on that.
The second piece I threw he actually paid attention to and said that he was amazed. I think when a person who has no idea what throwing is and watching someone create something from a lump of nothing, is pretty amazed. I knew I was, that is why I was so intrigued by it. Plus it looked like so much fun and calming. I have to admit that throwing on the wheel really has been my savior in life.
I took the remaining 3 pcs home so I can work on. Of course 2 hours later i noticed that Little had already made her bit marks into them. Fucking cat. Also the other piece that I had taken home, I noticed that there were scratches in them and I had no idea where they came from. I thought I had accidentally done that so I thought nothing of it. Now I know where they came from. Little sticks her little paw in there, unleashes claws and slashes them inside. What a little shit. I love her and all, but seriously she is so bad. When I was taking pictures the other day, she got in the way hence why she is in the picture. Oiy!!!
From now on my Saturdays will be a all day event at the studio. I’ll be up by 7am drop off Joey at work then head to gym for pilates and some cardio. 10 am – 4:30pm at the studio. I can get a lot done in that time. Next sat I will be working on my signature series that I created in San Diego. I had made about 9-10 sets of three and they all sold out. Since my ex and I broke up and I no longer had access to a wheel or kiln, I had to stop making them. I am so happy to start them up again. They have become very popular and I will soon start an online store. Probably will not have anything available until next year.
I don’t have pictures of the 3 pc series which sucks (no title right now). Actually, i don’t have pictures of a lot of my work. Especially of my work that was sold in San Diego. A lot of it just sold and I never took the time to take pics. I remember when I started to really get a grasp on throwing I would just make crap and give it away. Every once in awhile I would go to a friends house and see my work. Now I need to contact those people to give me images to add to my portfolio even though I can make something 10 times better now. Oh well. I promised myself to document my work with more effort instead of just keeping it all in my head. Also promised myself update my damn site. Haha. When will that ever happen. Soon I hope.
