Next Monday the 27th, Kailan, Andres and I will be installing our show! So this was pretty much the last studio time we had to get stuff ready for it. This might have been the most productive week I’ve had all semester! Deadlines are great for making art!
This was definitly the most productive week I’ve had this semester for printmaking, I got three things completely printed and got another thing finished, just not printed. This first one I started carving on friday, which is crazy! I got it all done in less than a week, and its not small. It’s titled “Life Thoughts”. It will be up in the show next week.
Like last semester, our final is a trade print. We have to make enough for everyone taking printmaking and we each get a copy. The print below is what I did for the trade. I ran the yellow on wood so it has a woodgrain design on it. I’m really happy with it. I ended up printing 20 of them, so I kind of took over the print room!
I finally got the sheep print done, It should be up in the show next week also.
I got the two prints I’m putting in the show on matte board and weights on them for over the weekend.
This was the last week for studio time in painting, so I got everything finished up and will be turning in my portfolio on monday.
This is why you wear shoes in the painting studio! There’s no telling how long those have been there!
I finally broke down and just got a globe to attach the keys too, its not my favorite, but its the only thing I can get to work.
We started our concrete sculptures this week. We mixed and pour it on tuesday and then started carving on thursday. My arms are so sore from the carving! It’s a lot of work, but I’m having fun with it!
I glazed the last of my projects this week which means I’m done with ceramics for the semester. Which makes me a little sad. Now I just have to wait for everything to get in and out of the kiln. I had five of my cups and my plate come out of the kiln.
When I made the plate I didn’t get the legs on correctly so I had to put them on with glaze, one of them shifted, so it doesn’t stand up right, maybe next time!
Here are all the things I got glazed this week. I should get most of it out next week.
