Look what was left on my doorstep! My friend, Bill Sabo left town and headed back to warmer temps and before he hit the road we traded some art. I gave him a Raven he wanted and I got this lovely vessel! It is one of his figure vessels. I’ll find out what the clay, glaze and firing details are and post. I just love the azure glaze and firing
marks that are on the form. His time in Alaska this summer was too brief and we didn’t get to make any new plaster casts or do any clay work together *sigh*. I just might have to make a trip south to see him at the St. Pete Clay Company. Wouldn’t that be fun?! Clay has been on my brain this week because Gina Hollomon, Steve Gordon and I have a Play (Clay) Day coming up! We're going to do some Raku at Gina's incredible art compound on Sand Lake. Us three had made a promise to hook up at the Alaska Botanical Gardens Outdoor Art Exhibit in June. In anticipation of our Play-Clay Day I bought some huge Salmon heads at City Market and stuck
them in the freezer. I'm going to make molds of them with some of the potters plaster I have left over from Bill & my projects!
My sweet son came through again to help me deliver the memorial dancers sculpture yesterday. I needed his truck and his muscle. The piece was sited by family members of a young girl who passed away. The family is creating a memorial sculpture and wildflower garden at their local Temple. The sculpture
will be surrounded in Forget-me-nots, Sitka Rose bushes and other perennials. One of the dancers on the sculpture is holding a rose which was the favorite flower of the
young girl. The couple in the photo are her parents who sponsored the commission. From inside of the Temple you will be able to see the new garden area and special memorial. I was proud to have been a part of this special project.
