Missing in action?

No, just needed to rest after the summer camp week, clean the house (lots of clay everywhere), do volunteer work, clean, clean, clean to switch the table over to silk dye painting, and a visit to the Georgia Aquarium. Sea creatures are soooo strange but soooo inspiring for art. My favorite? CUTTLEFISH! And giant squid. And giant octupus. And cod. Finally touched a starfish. Yuk. The ray was much nicer to "pet."

I have been carving tiny round clay pieces while sitting in front of the TV and "resting." I'm loving these little clay pieces, all inspired by one student's roundish "bead" she made in camp. The plan is to make them into necklaces or combine them with fiber.
Back to cleaning and decluttering so I can get back to work.

Getting ready to teach summer camp

I'm making clay samples for my one week summer camp in mid-June. Cleaning and putting away the silk teaching stuff until July when classes start back up at Chastain Arts Center. The basic exercise stationary bike got assembled. Lots of drapery fabric getting aired out and washed and made into drapes. Blinds collect way too much dust and drapes are easier to clean. And the house is getting decluttered again, well, just for two days. As soon as the clay samples are done, the table gets transformed into the silk painting studio again!
