The following photos show pieces that were created at my studio in a 5-day intensive in January. Let me say outright that I chose to show the work from this intensive not because I think it’s better than any other intensive, but because this time I held these people hostage and wouldn’t let them leave until they let me photograph their pieces.
We also agreed that names would not be mentioned, but if you have questions about certain pieces I will deliver the message.
The pictures are displayed in the order in which the they were taken. You can click on the photos to enlarge.
The background of the piece above was made from mixed clay that was left over from a different project. Depending on the composition of the mixed clay, you can get a range of colors, including the orange color shown in the photo.
Balling up wire was also discussed and practiced in the intensive. The piece above is connected to the chain with balled-up wire (at the bottom of the tubes), using a propane/oxygen torch.
The tube earrings on the bottom left show a natural wood grain pattern, which was also practiced in the intensive.
