Frantically Working

*Update: I have added pictures to the portfolio pages, even some of the older pages have added pictures.*

The school days are blazing by, they go so fast I do not think there is actually 24 hours in them anymore.  I have been working feverishly on my Senior Show.  The work was slow at first. I had to work through some problems with the clay body I mixed up.  Fortunately I was able to iron out those problems in a relatively short time.  Now I am in production mode, trying very hard to not to have any “Artists Blocks”.  I also began testing the vitreous engobes I will be using to cover my sculptures with.  So far the tests have been pretty successful.

In other news I submitted one of my finished sculptures to the Utah Arts Council: Statewide Annual Fine Crafts and Photography Show.  I received notice last week that the statue was accepted to the show, Inez and I will be going to the opening reception on the 16th of October.  I am really looking forward to this.  Only 1/3 of the submitted pieces were accepted into the show.  This is the first show outside of the student shows at the college that I have submitted work to.  I will post pictures from the open house.
