everyday inspiration

this post is inspired by a great list (and i love lists) called "ten steps to becoming the designer you want to be" by Laura Seargeant Richardson, which was posted on the GOOD website. You can find it here.

There are a few items on the list (#5 and #6) that mention learning something new everyday and creating a new idea everyday. I'm going to try and post something that I learn, and/or a new idea, and/or just simply something that is inspiring to me. An everyday inspiration.

So here goes.
Today I was inspired by this image from Sunday Suppers:

And I learned that there is a boulder that is stuck between two mountains in Norway called Kjeragbolton. They say it is a geological oddity. I think most of geology is an oddity, that's what makes it so fascinating. I found this on a lovely site called Atlas Obscura. Here is a sheep enjoying the view from the boulder:

porcelain and enamel

My new venture.
Porcelain meet enamel.
(thick coatings of dreamy colors of enamel overlaying delicate porcelain objects for the home.)
I'm drawing out ideas now and I'll start the making soon.
Can't wait.

inspiration lately

I'd like to acheve this sense of balance in color and rhythm within my work. mmmm...calm and realx. maybe it's just the rainy morning that is making me love these images.
or the sheer love for the incredible detail of the folding stool.
my new work will play with linen+ceramic and enamelled metal+ceramic.
linen pendant lights with ceramic involved somehow....nice.

two months in.

The first 2 months of grad school have been fast. and playful. and slightly productive, but very thought - full. i've learned that grad school for me, so far, is all about discovery and learning to create in flux of what i expect and what outcome i arrive at. i'm focusing on ceramic vessels for food production. come to open studio night, November 6th, to see all that is happening. 280 S. Columbus Drive, Studio M152F.

a few quick images. one of inspiration for all things fleeting and fast. and another of a recent commission project.
