The night before our big Boston snow storm I got to sneak in a few hours at the pottery studio. Granted, I spent 2.5 hours cleaning up and organizing the glaze room because I just couldn’t help myself –I made new glaze labels! I saved about 30 minutes to throw on some black mason stain for my mask and quick, sketchy cups.
I have been wanting to make masks for quite a number of months now, probably since early last year. Here is my first attempt at a ceramic mask.
We had a little pumpkin carving contest at our place this weekend! Mini-bonfire and all. It was a great chance to get people together to play with their food and celebrate an ol’ American tradition… hacking up large food produce for the simple pleasure of watching it glow with fire. Typical!
Artist Jin Young Yu and her Invisible People sculptural works and installations. Link to interview about being an artist in Korea and her design work.
What is the history of a mask? Venetian and East Asian themes touched upon, more to follow as the topic is broad!
