Some graffiti on Church Street in Burlington.
This installation is now at the Fire House Gallery. It's called Homunculus - by Steven Budington. It's a giant pile of sperm overwhelming an egg. What makes me uncomfortable about this piece is knowing the egg is underneath, being eaten and smothered by those tiny worms. Like a feeding frenzy. Nature is violent.
This is one of Steven's paintings also on display at the Fire House. I love his fascination with anatomy.
This is my little porch at night looking all fall-ish thanks to Darby's awesome pumpkins and flowers..
Charlotte is the new ceramics work-study and she is awesome; she will be taking over my position in November.
Preparing the kiln shelves is routine maintenance; they are scraped with a hammer and chisel then painted with kiln wash. The shelves around the door are drying.
I am going to back track in time a week to when the new kiln came. The opening of the giant box is too cool to skip. On the right is Dana Lee who is the Academic Coordinator & Advisor at CCV and also a bad-ass artist. To the left is a student named Kyle and behind the giant box is Harold (one of ceramics teachers).
This is the inside of the kiln. We will now be able to fire a lot more pottery at once because she is so gigantic.
Her name is Athena.
This is our clay delivery guy. He helped me move heavy things when he didn't really have to. I appreciate chivalry.
