Whoa,the proportions of this photo are a bit odd. Still, Shannon's new art setup looks awesome! I am so glad that yesterday I could take a little bit of time off work and spend the afternoon with Shannon making some big progress on the apartment. Sometimes that final push is tough and it was good to be able to help. The place is awesome!
I am so happy that Jamie was able to come over today and help get the apartment feeling that much more homey. I am super close to being unpacked, but there was a lot of things that needed shifting, or tucking away (or pulling out and tucking away again), to get to the next stage for organizing. And on the much more fun note, getting some nice, happy fun stuff a home. Like my plants! Which are now in a window! So exciting! Thank you Jamie!!
I bought this Japanese tin a week ago for 50 cents wanting to use it to make plates! I had my first official independent open studio and it was so quiet! Only one other person came to play with clay for a bit but for the first half hour I could really focus and do my own thing and make a plate. You cut out the clay to the shape you want, put it on this really deep foam and push down with the funky shaped tin to help give shape and lift the sides of the plate. So cool! I used the scraps too and was just in heaven. I even got to hang out with my pottery teacher and one of the painting teachers for a bit. Everyone was so nice. I can't believe how lucky I am to have this resource so close to me.
