Make a wish and then make it happen.
I’m tired of drip, drip, driping sweat on whatever is spinning on the wheel during the summer seasons. Needed a break and found one. Just a mile away from the house. It’s bit of a jump from having home and studio connected at the hip, but the distance still feels nice.
It’s going to be a summertime hanging at UOP ceramics lab!
Cold and rainy out in the studio, but gotta keep moving forward or work starts dying on the shelf.
Visually, texturally, and functionally, I think these spriggs are perfect ornamental speed bumps for the surface on these 9 pounders.
On a small scale, they work great. On a larger scale, I’m hoping they will really add to the narrative of the design and literally help me get a grip on the surfaces of these larger canisters.
A year later, I’m happy to see that the Apple has fallen fairly far from the tree. Thanks for the push Dan.
I knew this was going to be fun…
For this round, I’m playing along with using the plastic ends that are left over when I cut out billets of paper stencils.
Add a few spriggs tomorrow.
Allegory mirrors reality…
I really hope Sam had fun mucking out the clay trap at the UOP ceramics studio this morning… I know I got a few great laughs watching!
