The Newport Art Museum is now registering students for its summer courses. This past Christmas, my mom gave me three months of ceramics lessons with Charlene Carpenzano and it was the best gift I’ve ever received! Photography, you’re still my number one, but sometimes I just need more mess in my life. Nothing beats leaving the studio exhausted and splattered with the evidence of a creative storm. While I was in Greece, the fearless and talented women of YRIA CERAMICS inspired me to work harder to build the space around me, so that’s what I’ve set out to do: to leave the marks of my own hands on the objects of my everyday (however wibbly-wobly this may cause them to be). Thanks to my Wellesley friends for the hand modeling and studio fun.
ps- I love this video, watching the potter improve with every vase he makes. I even think the lopsided ones are beautiful once glazed in crisp white.
