A very busy week:
|my finished book :)|
final session of Pop-up case book class at
the Art School of Columbia County !
|Class Picture - Pop-up Case Books, Spring 2014|
class - me, Tom McGill, Mary Young and Beth Thielen (instructor)
|my second book|
Used the new book-making techniques to assemble the bunny collages
|Xu Bing's giant phoenix sculptures|
I missed seeing these at Mass MOCA, so I when I heard they were being reinstalled
in the cathedral, I thought - field trip!
|Keith Harng altar piece surrounded by |
grisaille stained glass (!)
|Winged figure with giraffes (!?!) - that's a new one for me|
|getting ready for round 2 of medallic engraving in June|
|The Philosophia needs a top - 3 possibilities|
|I kept working on this - especially on the interaction of the fingers, book, sleeve and leg.|
Attended a print workshop at Zea Mays on pronto plate printmaking with Nancy Diessner.
|practicing for the upcoming vanitas still lifes|
This workshop was a fortuitous last minute addition. I was really happy with the photopolymer class I took with Nancy two weeks ago. Photopolymer is a good solution to some of the issues I was working out, but, after learning more, I realized that there were actually several distinct issues and that I really wanted to learn pronto plate printmaking too, a non-toxic lithography on polyester plate. A spot opened up at the last minute and voila!
|I redrew a favorite from etching|
|One can never have too many parrots|
