Work in progress- In the kiln

Today with my studio mate Bryan's help,  the flower made it into the kiln. I thought ahead and built this on a big kiln shelf.  The next step is drying it out at 110 degrees for several hours,  then we are ready for the first firing.  I am so relived that it made it all the way to the bottom with minimal damage.  Thanks Bryan!

Work in Progress-Flowers

I made some changes today.  I think the center works better this way.

Work in Progress- Revisiting Flowers

This piece is part of the "waving not drowning " series.  I never was completely happy with the past flowers so I thought I would make another one. This one is 22" around.  I hope it makes it through the firing and that I can lift the kiln shelf I built it on!

I found these surfing around the web.  I think I like it conceptually, but this is also a very obvious choice.  I need to do more research and to throw a bigger net.

As you know I am a big fan of food art. Tonight we went to gastro heaven.  Commonwealth on Mission and 18th St.  The top image was my first course which included;  porcini mushrooms, corn, snap peas, smoked turnip, puffed amaranth, sheep’s milk veil. Sheep's milk veil?  Whoa!  I want to eat there tomorrow night too!
