Finally getting started putting my work out there... Today I took stuff to the 477 store at the MCA graduate center on main st. And they picked three felt necklaces, a coral necklace and earring set and two other coral studs all for sale! Here's one of my favorites that I almost kept for myself
i am looking for the camera upload cord... as soon as it is found i will post pictures of the babycreep sculpture and necklace collection that i have taken out of my senior BFA piece. the piece itself had to be disassembled for lack of space to store it and because lately i have been so fond of recycling my supplies which in turn is also very cost and time effective! anyway... i'll post a few pictures of my final piece for now but as soon as that cord shows it's face the babycreeps will be here in their lovely individual portraits for your viewing pleasure. until then here are two pictures of my final BFA piece.
i graduated just this saturday from Memphis College of Art! it's been 5 and a half long years but i made it. and next i am leaving this thursday to go to Horn Island. this will be my third year going on this amazing trip sponsored by MCA but this will be the 27th year anniversary of the start of the program! we spend 8 days on an island (horn island) off the coast of mississippi. last year we were leaving just as the first signs of the effects of the oil spill were showing up. i am both excited and nervous to see what the spill has changed about the island. hopefully there will be just as many dolphins early in the morning, pelicans, crabs, jellies, fish and all of the many other animals that inhabit this beautiful place. here is a small ceramic sculpture that i made after last years trip.
when i get back (may29th) i plan to post pictures of the babycreep sculptures and jewelry that i created recently. be on the lookout in the next few months!
As soon as i finish my senior BFA piece ( pssst! it's due the 27th of april) i will be posting my new collection of babyface and seascape jewelry and sculptures! so be on the lookout for pretty things to hang on your walls, put flowers in, put your toothbrush in and stuff to wear around your neck, fingers, and on all of your beautiful little heads! also, if you have any ideas for things i should/could make that i'm not thinking of just let me know but be patient i have lots of ideas and barely enough time to get them outta this bitty head o' mine
so he's putting the vibraphone he borrows from work back together and mentions that when we have to move to a different place the navy guys in charge might not be as nice there as they are here about letting him check out (borrow) different instruments like he does with the vibes. so i said that surely they make a smaller version like mini vibes or something more affordable and easy to store. so i googled it, like all of us do these days when we're curious about something, and came across a link that said: "how to build your own vibraphone" i read this out loud and he says: "I can't hang a picture." and as i laugh i remind him that i'm a sculpture major and can build things so he doesn't have to. i am so glad he is NOT a tim the tool man or anything... lol. god i love him.
it's overwhelming sometimes. everything. the choices, the options, the possibilities that every day holds. just thinking about it makes me feel like spacing out at the computer staring at pretty things on etsy or snooping through facebook photos of people i've barely spoken to this past year. i have tons of things with which to create but it's daunting. the thought of the many many ideas that go through my mind for just one little object or piece of fabric, yarn or clay. ugh... it's not lack of creativity but having too much that seems to be the trouble. how silly. i am, however, thankful that my mind is not a complete blank. just a crazy conglomeration of "i could make this into this or this or this or THIS!" man oh man... i better get to making. here's what i made yesterday...
gotta put my brain on channel focus so i don't waste today on indecision! :D
