Here are a few pieces that were featured at the Thumb Artist Studio Tour June 16 & 17, 2012 at Laurie Conger’s studio located in Port Austin, Michigan. Enjoy!
It’s sad to see this go but I have decided that my focus is elsewhere. The wonderful pieces that came from the kiln sold well. Just like ending a relationship, the time has come to move on and I hope the kiln will go to a good home. Here are the basics:
Olympic 2327 gas kiln – $950.00 Fires to cone 10, natural gas, 23″ wide x 27″ tall, 7 cu ft.
The kiln is in very good shape, works like a charm and I’m including a few shelves.
In 2006 the list price was $1,363, current price $1,475 – $1,670. Must pick up, will not ship. I am located in Marysville, MI about 1 hour north of Detroit and 13 miles south east of Port Huron. Please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Just like the alternative Canadian band Bahamas sings “Caught Me Thinking”, these last two raku firing have been sweeet! These mini tiles have been a fun experiment with big results. The bold, garish resin frames have been toned down with copper spray paint and some metallic highlights. More Italian tiles framed and unframed plus Michigan tiles galore. Here are a few for the Post Austin area. Hope to see you at the Thumb Arts Studio tour June 16 & 17 in Port Austin. For more info go to www.thumbstudiotour.com
The Dirty Girls of Clay are back and ready for an exciting studio tour in Port Austin, Michigan! A few weeks ago Laurie Conger and myself had a smashing raku firing! Mermaid tiles, Italian tiles and and bottles were fired and we got excellent results. You can see all the photographs on facebook at Thumb Studio Tour and at my page. Also check the new posts on Red MuddStudio page as well.
I can’t waste anything in the studio. Even old jars or test glazes that are just ugly. So I decided to retest on some new funky bowls and see what came out. To my surprise the majic is a keeper. If you are interested in purchasing any of these bowls just send me an email at email@example.com the shipping and handling.
Records were broken for this years Empty Bowls! Over $17,000 was raised! More than 300 tickets were sold and more patrons came this year than ever. All of my 50 bowls were snatched up. At first I thought 50 bowls was a little too much but by the end of the evening all of the donations were gone. We used the back stock from previous years so we didn’t run out. Thank you for supporting the 9th Annual Empty Bowls event with proceeds going to Mid City Nutrition.
Just about every week I review my photographs from my trip to Italy. I can’t explain just how this trip has changed me. For each opportunity, task, thought or gesture, I reflex on Italy and it’s influences guide my decisions. Still riding the high!
Here is the latest book I have listened too in the studio “People of the Book” by Geraldine Brooks. The blurb describes it as ‘Rare book expert Hanna Heath is offered a dream job that involves the conservation of a rare Jewish text. As she analyzes the book, she uncovers several small artifacts that help to unlock several of the book’s great mysteries and its long journey.
Fourteen hours later, I’m not sure I really liked the book. It’s a choppy, many characters to follow and lots of unanswered questions. If you are a history or religion buff you may like it more than I.
