Just a few photos to share what I’ve been up to…

New pots unloaded yesterday!  I’m really psyched about the stacked vases!

Ski week with a trip to the Peak as they hung new prayer flags!

Coloring pages I came up with from the ideas of the GSA student group at our local high school!  Other coloring page designs and recent pots are available on my etsy page!  (I haven’t had a chance to post these pots yet, so keep checking back!)

Holiday Making

By | Blog, Business, Making, Marketing, Sales, Taos | No Comments

If it seems like I’ve dropped off the face of the Earth when it comes to blog posting, and many other activities, it’s because I basically have.  I’ve shut myself up in the studio and have been making great little gift items.  Your favorite and mine, cups, mugs, and bowls!

Thanks to Dana at tea-o-graphy some of those mugs will be available at the holiday harvest market sale at KTAOS (our very own Solar Radio station) this Saturday brought to our little community courtesy of the Taos Farmer’s Market.

If you can’t make it tomorrow there are a few other events where these mugs and others will be available.  Come on out to the Lighting of Ledoux Street on December 5, and pop into Substance of Taos for a visit, and to pick out great gifts from a variety of local artists as well as the finest women’s clothing selection you can find nearly anywhere!

And of course don’t forget to make it to Arroyo Seco and pick out your favorite ceramic pieces at our annual Holiday Sale and Bazaar Thursday December 10 from 5-8pm.  We’ll have the colorful paintings of Anee Ward, the whimsical collages of Jill Rounds, and the fabric creations of Claire Blanchard and the Tufted Chair.

Wishing you a Happy Thanksgiving!

Thinking Smaller

Just over a year ago a few friends joined me in attending my first Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta.  If you ever have a chance to go, please do.  It is one of the most enchanting experiences you may ever have, waking before light to see glowing orbs announce the dawn, then wandering through acres of inflating masses that eventually lift off and fill our yawning skies with rainbows of fire breathing beasts.  No joke, you feel like Alice in Wonderland wandering through oversized mushrooms in all manner of psychedelic patterning.IMG_7582

Taos hosts its own Balloon Fiesta, scaled back, less traffic, a more reasonable hour of the morning, and still an utter delight for all who attend.  Extra easy on the little ones in so many ways makes for a great family event!

It’s also the time of year to build inventory for the holiday push.  The studio rhythm has scaled down, become about making cups, mugs, and bowls in mass quantity, objects ideal for gifting friends and family.IMG_3346

Cowgirls have taken a back seat for the moment, still available in the shop here, on etsy, and at Gallery Mar.  I’m also working with tea-o-graphy to put together the perfect holiday gift of blended teas and your very own one-of-a-kind mug both made here in Taos, New Mexico.  It looks like we’ll be attending a few different events where you can buy these great little gifts, so stay tuned and come on out to see what we’ve come up with!

Commission a Sculpture for The Cowgirl or Cowboy in Your Life

By | Blog, Business, Cowgirls, Inspiration, Making, New Ideas | No Comments

I was honored to sculpt this sweet little cowboy for his doting grandmother.  The posture was just so simple and lovely I was thrilled to capture the timid feeling of his gesture from the photos that she sent.

I have done a few other commissions for folks out here and there, gifts for or of loved ones, exactly what the Clay Cowgirls are to me, capturing features, gestures, and looks of people I have looked up to, cared for, and known.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Commissioned pieces start at $675 and require a few photos and a short description of the person you would like to honor.  Tell me a little about the cowgirl or cowboy in your life, and I will create a unique, one-of-a-kind sculpture to match those sentiments.

Where did January go?

By | Blog, Inspiration, Making, Process, Studio | No Comments

It’s been a helluva January that went by in a blink, my love got the flu right when we had agreed to take on two housesits on opposite ends of town.  I did the hustle back and forth to get the pups outdoors and exercised while he recovered from a pretty harsh take down that I know many of you can relate to.  In my last post I talked about keeping works in progress in the studio and while I barely made it in here I did pull reclaim buckets and began to reconstitute some creamy white porcelain I’d had sitting around for quite a while.

Though I hadn’t spent much time elbow deep in clay I did enjoy the mass postings of artwork from peers and <a href="https://www.facebook.com/laura viagra sildenafil citrate.brzozowski.5″>the challenge to go back through my own work and share 3 works a day for 5 days.  Seeing that work I had made and really enjoyed dredged up the desire to make functional and sculptural porcelain pieces again.  While my clay slowly comes back to a workable state I have pinched together a few cups and threw out slabs for slump plates and bowls.  The sculptures are coming together in my mind’s eye and I am looking to pick up a few more boxes of this porcelain and see what happens!

A little on process

By | Blog, Business, Cowgirls, Making, Process, Studio | No Comments

A wise potter once told me (and a class of other workshop attendees) to always have works in progress waiting for you in the studio, it will be sure to get you in to work the next day and everyday.  I try to keep this in mind.  Even with a few weeks away with the family over the holidays, a great time to hit the reset button, allow clay works to dry out, clean the slate, rearrange, and start fresh, I have paintings in progress, tea sets waiting for their cups, sewing projects cut and ready to be finished, and clay sculptures in mind for my return.Watch Full Movie Online Streaming Online and Download

Rarely do I have a sculpture project I can complete from start to finish in one day.  More complex forms, like independent arms, or forms that have a more dramatic bend in the body, require drying time to harden with the right amount of integrity to support the piece.  Thanks to the dry high desert climate, things can dry a little faster here in Taos, than, say in the Everglades, but it’s a fine line.  Let your work dry too much and you don’t have the freedom to reshape a portion you may not be happy with later.  With clay we have a wonderful material that we can allow to dry and rewet later, and a myriad of options when it comes to working the material at various stages, but there is a certain amount of timing and understanding that comes with experience to work in this medium.

People often ask, “how long did it take you to make that?”  I know they want to know how long it took to sculpt, or form a single piece, not considering drying time, multiple firings, and finish work, but even with that in mind, most laymen don’t consider the development of an idea, the experimentation, the trial and error of learning the craft, nor the pulling together of thoughts and ideas that will later defend our works in artist statements and hopefully posterity.  Some peers even answer by saying it took them their whole lives to make that piece, and in a sense, it did!

Cowgirls of Substance!

What a lovely evening in town with friends and treats and beautiful clothing!  Jennifer of Substance hosted another holiday gathering with guests artisans including jewelry, bath and body products, and of course Clay Cowgirls!

Thanks for the warm holiday cheer!  Remember to visit Substance for that special new piece for your wardrobe or to soothe the season’s stresses with a facial, a new hair cut, or other spa treatment from Eliza and Pinch!
