Bigger than I thought but very nice detail. Looks strong and will endure the elements. So excited to get some bees this spring.

About

Life after Adjunct

I was apprenticed to a sculptor over twenty years ago, so the art journey has been long. I have always been a sculptor. When I was in school in 1996, I inherited my grandmothers old ceramic shop equipment and supplies. The kiln remained in boxes until three years ago when I finally had a home that I could plug it into. Meanwhile, I had started teaching ceramics (along with Sculpture) at the university and was getting a bit spoiled by their digitally programmable kiln. Grandma's 1970's model was starting to look like a really hot Easy-Bake oven. In August of 2015, I taught my last college class. I had decided that the adjunct professor life is no life at all. For eleven years I helped others discover Art, and I am proud of that, but now I am on a new journey of my own. I outfitted the two car garage and bought a new kiln. My inspirations are varied. Sometimes it's my grandmothers influence, all rhinestones and flashy colors, but most often it's the garden. My husband and I founded a community garden in 2013 (www.62ndgarden.wordpress.com) and, between it and my own little garden, my mind is often on the textures, shapes, colors and function of the natural world.
