I’m selling my ceramics for the first time ever, this Saturday, at a sale at Lena Corwin’s studio. 218 Adelphi Street in Fort Greene.
The sale goes from 12-5pm, and I’ll be there in person for *the first two hours*. If this sounds like your kind of thing, come on by! I think I’ll be the only potter — there will be clothing, jewelry, prints and other home goods, all made by independent designers. Lena is an excellent curator.
Other designers include:
Sunshine & Shadow
Favorites from a really nice Flickr set of photographs taken while train hopping. (Found on For Me, For You.)
Another artist I like, one I don’t know much about: Ritsuko Ozeki. I’ve had her work bookmarked for months now and keep returning back to look at it.
Zach’s been quietly amassing a collection of awesome pictures. There’s geometry and color, stillness and motion, people and upside-down empty landscapes. I curated a Flickr gallery with some of my favorites.
Another in the Potters I Like series: Lauren Adams of White Bike Ceramics. She works with porcelain, and for a long time purchased her clay from a doll manufacturer. That clay gave her pieces the most amazingly smooth, fine surface texture. They barely needed glaze. I own a little black teacup but what I really want is a teapot. I love the drippy joint she gave to that spout in this picture.
Last summer I got really nostalgic about sunprints, a flashback from my childhood.
Leslie Giuliani’s cyanotypes on cloth tickle the same fancy. She takes old bed sheets and coats them with a light sensitive emulsion. Then lays down paper cutouts and exposes them, to produce a silhouette of the object on that classic cyanotype blue. I love!
I’m not much for her other work, but you can peruse.
Last night we saw the documentary In A Dream after Sarah Kramer recommended it. (That’s her second appearance here!)
It chronicles the life and work of the filmmaker’s father — a mosaic artist who has covered more than 50,000 square feet of Philadelphia with murals — and his tumultuous relationship with his wife. It’s dramatic and loving and beautiful.
I’m growing to love documentary portraits of artists. What’s necessary is that the filmmaking be as accomplished and inspired as the artist’s work. Two other favorites are What Remains (Sally Mann) and Rivers and Tides (Andy Goldsworthy).
Amazing knitwear by Annie Larson. I wish I was in Minneapolis today; then I could see the opening of a collective project with her work, called New Land of Milk and Honey. It sounds awesome: “We will unveil our current progress in knitting, electronic sleep, ley/tectonic farm acceleration, synesthesia, painting, solar wave exchange, prenatal learning, cryptoceramics, enlargened creativity, and chronobiology.”
