I’m obsessed with old barns. I have been since I was 10, and we moved to a farmhouse with a huge old barn. I used to climb into the hay loft and jump down below. It was a great place to play. I’m also obsessed with anything old including doors, windows, and antiques. All these “loves” are finally joining up in my work. My current lidded vessels look like this.
These are nice, but I’m not fulfilled. Here are some lidded vessels I’m currently working on.
One can see I have a lightning rod, semi-geodesic dome, a silo, a round barn, and what looks like a circus tent (I was trying more for a cupola). These are the first prototypes and need more work, but wanted to share these images.
I was listening to NPR last week on a program about insomnia. Lately, I wake up at 4:00am about 3-4 times a week. My mom says it’s because it’s my creative time. I think it because Jasper (one of my cats) tries to sit on my head. It never occurred to me that I might have insomnia. I’ve never been a champion sleeper; champion mid-afternoon napper for sure. During one of my late night sessions I came up with a new logo idea. What do you think?
