SOLD - Shoe Sculpture

 I sold today my Dancing Shoe Sculpture that I made in 2013. The shoe found a really nice new home :-)

It was designed with 1980's disco era in mind - way back when I used to dance in Manhattan's clubs to "Pet Sop Boys" and "Depeche Mode" and "Frankie Goes To Hollywood" and..... you get the picture. Good Old Fun Days. And... you had to be "hip", otherwise those "boys at the rope" would not let you in.

2014 Wilton Public Library Summer Group Show

The blue painting on the left is mine
I have been very busy with my life lately. Actually so much busy that I do not post much about my art anymore. I really need to organize my schedule a little better, since I have so many interests and venues. Art, school, knitting and crocheting (designing patterns and teaching) videotaping and editing, blogging, and hair/make-up. Oh and I forgot - henna tattoo that my daughter got me into one day when her and her friends called me at 10:30 at night when they were having fun at one of the girl's house - "Pleeeaaaaase can you come over and do our henna tattoos?" (I could not say no to something fun like that even that I have never done it before. how hard could it be, right?)
Besides,  I just cannot concentrate on one thing - I have to do all of the interesting projects, because - all of them are too much fun to miss!

I get so involved with my interests that I forget that the rest of the world exists.

Well, the latest in my art area is that I am showing two of my latest pieces in Wilton Public Library (Connecticut). I have mixed feelings about this. Kind of.
When I went to see the hanging (it is a group show) my paintings are so different from 90% of the artists that I think I should be exhibiting on another planet. I guess. LOL.

Soooooo, if you are in Wilton, CT - go see the exhibition (it ends on Aug 31st, 2014). All the local artists are in the show. There is so much to see.

One of my paintings is in the middle (just in case you were wondering)

Abstract Ceramic - "Destruction of Earth"

I have never worked with clay so I decided to take "Ceramics" class. It was interesting and quite challenging to model clay with hands - first with a coil, then with slabs. After that I learned how glazes work. Some turned out great, couple were just 'eh', if you know what I mean.

Well, here is my abstract piece called "Destruction of Earth".

These slabs were first textured, then cut up and bent into shapes, then connected together into an abstract piece, which gives us a feeling that the Earth exploded. After my finished and dried abstract was fired, I painted some pieces with "lava", other pieces with dark and light green glazes, which I extended onto my lava glaze to tie them together. The orangey color that you see is that of the fired clay, which is giving this piece another dimension.

Tomorrow is my last day in the ceramics class, and I have to do a presentation,  which will be on a more useful piece - a yarn "bowl" and a "Shrine to Knitting God", since I love to knit and crochet. An image of one or two more pieces, including my presentation pieces, will be published within couple of days.
