I am a woman of many interests. On any given day you will find me painting in my studio, sculpting little heads out of clay, throwing pots and bowls on the wheel or writing. I think I must have ADHD because I jump from project to project. I never get bored and I feel one should learn something new everyday.

Kiln

It feels very good to work with clay again.  I have thrown four bowls on the wheel at the Village Artists studio.  I have also been working on more leaves for necklaces. 
Best of all I have been given a free kiln!
  It is currently not working but I have not given up hope.  The kiln is a model 181 Skutt and it is old from 1960-1979.  I was given this from the Beverly Art Center, I answered an ad on Craigslist!  They told me that if I can get it working it can be used to slump glass as well as fire clay.  Of course this picture is off the Skutt website and is a new small kiln but this will give you an idea of what I am working with size wise. I am pretty excited.


We are getting ready for our Grand Opening and we are also going to have classes again.

The Village Artists will be starting classes again at our new space.  Artist, Pat Moore, has graciously accepted the teaching position.
