when things don't quite work

of course it happens, and yes usually when working with a when the kiln breaks down two days before an upcoming show...or the slip was too thin and a whole kiln load looks washed out...
i was making some pieces for the "Musically Inclined" show at Artzi Stuff and it took me awhile to figure out what i wanted to make. so i lost some time and yes finished them within a week of the deadline (which means not enough time to make something else)...i made record plates. perhaps not the most original idea? although i haven't seen any kicking any case i was happy with them & the process. ACDC Back in Black, the Police Synchronicity, and the BEst of Fats Waller...

as you can see they came out brown instead of black! ack! and while i know that there is coloured vinyl out there, we have some in our collection, but not quite what i was going for .....but good enough to ship off. i really have to tweak that "black" slip! and if you need to have an ACDC plate...the show opens April 13, 7:30-9:30 in Nanaimo. check out the website for directions.

on a more positive note, i have a new gallery here in victoria! Side Street Studio is now carrying a selection of work. check it out if you can!
