My new studio is inspiring a new series of paintings, I feel it is some of my best work. I have reintroduced sculpture back into my studio and schedule. In the last two months, I spent two weeks at Penland and one week at Arrowmont, schools of contemporary craft, experimenting with different materials.
The beginning of a new sculpture series, this one is titled "Ponder." I made this hand built hollow clay piece while I was in a two week soft robotic and mold making workshop at Penland School of Contemporary Craft. While I was absorbing much technical information, I used a bag of clay to create dams for mold projects of silicone and urethane, I built this piece this over five days.
