This piece just made it's way the Mountain Made Gallery, in the Grove Arcade, Page Street, Downtown Asheville. Whilst not a vessel, it still has those waves that I am drawn to. The colors, of course, are my beloved Blue Ridge Mountain sunset.
Huge amount of time working on this site. But it was time well spent. I'm so knocked over by the beauty of the Appalachian Mountains around Asheville, that I want to share it with the world!
Last night I made a list of studio tasks for today. Clean up the forms I use to shape the fiber vessels and window sill accent pieces I make. Done! Complete the smaller blue and green vessel. Done. Then I turned to embellishing the second smaller vessel. That piece is comprised of all the colors I see from my porch .... the colors of the beauty of the Appalachian Mountains that are all around me. I used fabulous metallic purple and green paints, and gilded the fluted edges with copper paint. Just stunning, if I do say so myself! I'll post a picture of it once the finish is applied.
A productive day in the studio, for sure. And I look up at the clock and realize that it's time to start dinner. Time just goes away when I'm in the creative mode! A sure sign that I'm on the right path!
