I haven't figured out if I'm really busy lately or just really lazy...I have a bunch on my plate and am actually getting stuff done, in the studio, the house, and in my brain...but I still feel like I'm neglecting 1000 things...And as I just wrote on my facebook page, I am trying to fit weeks worth of stuff into days. Good news is, though, that I started some new work (Process photos tomorrow! Promise!), and have a few upcoming projects that I'm really excited about, so I think I'm doing ok. (I think...) :)
a miniature ocean comes down tomorrow....I will be oh so sad to see it go but will be excited to post the work on both my website and Etsy page.

Bronze Casting with Sheike - There's this awesome guy at this casting place in the Jeweler's Row area...I think the name is International Casting or something like that...He's super nice and does a great job. Justin took a bunch of Kiki Smith pieces to him for casting a while back, when he worked for the foundry that casts her work (the pieces were so small that they were better suited to investment casting rather than the ceramic shell casting the foundry does) and Sheike did some fabulous casting work. And not only that, he's always really interested in how to innovate the process. He and Justin talk about casting and how to make it better every time they see each other. He's also interested in the difference between casting sculpture and jewelry bits and how to make the processes for one work for the other and vice versa. I love people like this! I'll be sure to include photos of the finished piece when it returns!
