Portrait of a Woman
I just found a new bisque supplier, and I am a very happy girl. My old supplier skipped town so no more giant bowls and platters for me. My new supplier is wonderful and I think Ann and I will both have a wonderful year.
I am gearing up for an ongoing workshop. I will teach it here and online. We will be working with big ceramic French platters. It will be a self portrait workshop for women of all ages, abilities and backgrounds.
The objective is pure self expression, who we are, who others think we are, how we see ourselves in truth, beauty, fear, longing, sorrow and love. We will be serving up intimate portraits of ourselves. I love the idea of using a traditional object.
If you are interested in being a part of the project please email me. It will be very exciting, there will be an online gallery of the completed project and a show at a local gallery of all the work.
At the moment I am collecting names. Let me know if you would like to meet for workshops at Eleven Morning or if you need to do a virtual workshop. I will have more details in a couple weeks. I plan to begin the project at the end of summer.
