in preparation for christmas i am a. not partying and b. working my ass off and c. preparing to host a "kilnhouse christmas party". that's right time for me to lay off the rum and eggnog and work every minute of every day. life is grand. i had a very productive week in the stude. tonight is decorating/wine drinking night for me hehe ok so i'm a hypocrite... i am creating an christmas installation. not the usual store bought christmas decor will you find around here. i will be using only natural decorations as is my habit for every ocassion, no tree will be cut only the bows which i hauled 3 miles this morning from my parents farm. it's true there is probably better ways for me to utilize my time than making chandeliers out of spruce bows and covering walls to create a "bow carpet" but what the hey, i feel inspired to do so :)

christmas is coming...aka the only time for an artist like me to make some coin and pay off some freepeople.com debt hah! so i am gettin to work in the studio...in case you didn't know http://www.freepeople.com/ is a very inspirational super fricken awesome clothing company where i pull a lot of inspiration from. my work has always been very influenced by fashion, fabric textures, and of course music...sometimes i think i went into the wrong line of artwork...but then i realize no i loooove clay, why? because you can do ANYTHING with it! you can literally make anything you can imagine! here are some of my new "beer drinkin tumblers" that i just glazed today, i want them to almost look like really pretty sweaters, i like to think of them as pretty yet rough around the edges...it makes them real. not too pretty that you're afraid to use them. an authentic type of beauty...i dunno. anywho i am also framin up a storm and working on some fabric collages, enjoy:) oh yeah and that is my crazy artist dinner tonight.
