Just a quick report on the Kiln Carving workshop last weekend - so much fun! My fellow art-makers really made it worthwhile. They were curious, slightly goofy & meticulous. That turned out to be the perfect combination of qualities.
We got a chance to work on positive/negative coaster designs, single-layer and double-layer fiber patterns for tiles. Then we shifted gears a bit and did some powder pieces, both over cut designs and packed into open patterns.
I love that moment when you open the kiln to reveal everyone's work from the day before. It's just like Christmas morning. I just wanted to share photos from the workshop so you can see how great they did!

July 12-16 - I can't wait!
I hope you're getting some art time in this summer. And I hope I get to see you August 26-27 for my open studio!
