If you have been reading past posts on my site or my blog (which I’m not so sure that there are that many of you doing just that), you know that I have some of my work for sale at the gift shop here at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art in Kansas City, MO. This has been quite an honor for me since the Nelson is one of the top notch art museums in the area…maybe the best. The staff has made me feel quite special by asking me to do basically a residency even though it was just for a few hours. I am part of the “Artists is In” by demonstrating my art. Couldn’t quite see hauling my wheel up to KC, but I managed to do some hand building. It was fun to engage the little ones by having them play with my texture tools on a slab to make their own art. One little guy showed me a new way to use one of my texture tools just by using the opposite end…which I have used in some of my work.
I was most pleased by the fact that of all the pieces that I brought for the museum to sell, there wer only three pieces left! That means more for them to buy later!! And I have been asked to demo again in December!!! Thanks to Kory and her staff!!!
