Organic Wood Carving
I draw a bunch of different ideas of wooden piece I could make. The drawings vary in scale, proportion, style. Eventually I trust my gut on what one feels right to me.
I picked the largest drawing I drew in sharpie to be my goal for my wooden piece I will make.

Latest update of converting my basement into a ceramic studio.
My basement studio officially feels cozy and enjoyable to work in!
It is literally cozier with the addition of insulation the basement stays a lot warmer, and visually cozier with the warm hues of the wooden walls.
I am still figuring the layout of my studio, and need to build more furniture but it's mostly done. The time to put up these walls was almost month, and well worth the disruption in studio time. Now to add some more shop lights for these long dark Milwaukee winter days.
My favorite part of the basement remodel so far is my deep window sills that I am already starting to fill with plants.
I'll be sharing more photos soon of this basement slowly turning into a functional studio space.

I thought I would share some more work from 2010 to accompany the video I made of my 2010 bowl from my share a pot and a memory video series. To watch that video click here.
What do you think should I bring some of this thrown cylinder slab built forms back?
Cheers to 2020 and the beginning of a new decade.

Rocks are a constant source of inspiration for my artwork. Ranging from my love of their shapes whether it's an individual rock or whole rock formation. In addition I gain ideas from rocks earthy color palette, and patterns.
The rocks from my most recent trip to lake superior were particularly inspiring. That shoreline had a plethora of voluminous round rocks with amazing patterns. Look at how I found a black rock with an orange pattern similar to my tattoo.
I seriously could have drawn sketches of the rock patterns for days on that trip. I couldn't believe diversity of granite colors with subtle texture. I mean just look at that yellowish and reddish rock I am holding in the pictures below. Glaze goals for sure!
Ps. I hope you had some adventures and time to be refreshed by nature this summer as well.
Here on my blog I share behind the scenes, events, and activities related to my art.
