how beautiful and simple is the work of sara paloma? i am always obsessed with pure white ceramics, but she has outdone herself with these forms. i have been taking a wheel throwing class and i have absolutely no idea how she pulls those long, delicate bottle necks. if you have ever worked on the wheel you know how hard it can be, and those look damn near impossible! as much i love it all (espescially the vertebrate vases), it is unfortunately quite out of my price range, sigh.
check out her work here at her etsy shop.
I have been very lazy, but happy july! I am currently drooling over the work of New Zealand based artist Kelly Thompson. The work below is part of her current exhibit, Bookworms Never Go To Bed Alone, up at the Gorker Gallery in Melbourne. She is celebrating the awkward child that grew up in to the impossibly beautiful geek (swan). She is also an amazingly talented photographer, be sure to check out her website to see her entire collection of illustrations and photography in all its glory.
Summer has begun, and although I have kept incredibly busy with projects and having fun- I am not feeling like I have gotten anywhere! My to-do list is long and getting longer everyday. I think instead of crossing things off, I just keep adding to it. Currently working on:
- album artwork for a friends band
- painting for sisters room
- decorating our new bedroom on a $75 budget
- trying to get classes into some sort of organization for next school year
