I was hoping to be able to tell everyone good news about the NC Visual Artist Grant but the official news will not be out until sometime in August. Im still waiting, and I don't know when in August. This grant would help me purchase a larger kiln, which I went ahead bought anyway. I am making large pieces for my dish-ware series and outdoor sculpture items.
I'm excited about my shop in Wilmington, NC.. Allie Bryand is a great artist and runs a fun shop with wonderful art that my "baby head" sculptures, dream boxes and chickens fit right in. I have made some small magnets and other pieces that I hope with appeal to her customers.
So, get your rubber boots on, and your rain coats ready as we are very wet at Magnolia Farm! We had a fun trip to the beach but now its time to get some clay work done and make those ghosts, and Christmas ornaments for the fall! ( Michaels and Hobby Lobby has Halloween out as my granddaughter pointed out to me)
