In the Studio

I am working on a new jewelry line which I first began during my residency at the Museum of Arts and Design in New York.  I had put the project on hold while I was getting used to my new life here in Barcelona, but I decided it was time to bring this project back to the front burner.  I hope to have some actual pieces from this new line for sale in my online store by November!

These are some initial pieces, but I am still playing with a bunch of different ideas.

New Studio Space

I moved my workspace to a new location within the same communal studio.  The square footage is less, but the space flows much better.  I love the feel of my new spot, it's like my very own cocoon.

In the Studio

Today was my first full day back in my Barcelona studio. I am working on expanding the visual vocabulary of my Off Circle vessels.  I have been experimenting with fully hand-building them, instead of throwing the pots on the wheel and then altering them.  I think with this change in method I am able to create pieces that have a stronger organic feel.  Each new piece seems to be getting closer to the image I have in my head.

It's great to be back!
