Thesis Pieces

So I realized yesterday, as I was looking at my DISASTER of a bench, that I have about four neckpieces started (barely) for my thesis and an idea for a fifth. Plus the 250 wall brooches I'm planning on making. I've gotten myself into that uncomfortable place where the ideas are coming faster than the work is getting made.

I mean, I was making forms just to make forms, maybe for this piece I designed over a year ago, and all of the sudden, there they are on my bench and a little sketching/thinking and a title later, this piece totally needs to be in the show. I also realized that one of my rocks for Sacra Sancta is too small. Poop.

I'm not going to be posting many pictures of the thesis work, partially because I want it to be a surprise at my show, and partially because my landlords switched my Internet provider so it kinda sucks now, and I'm pretty sure it would take forever to load photos. And I never remember to bring my camera cord to school.

But the ultimate goal is 10-14 neckpieces, and 250-500 wall brooches (depending on the size of the wall). Here are my titles so far, just to give you a taste:

Sacra Sancta
Flow Like Water
Gray Grief (Potato/Rock)
Inner Growth: Salt in the Soul
All the Stones at Your Feet

Happy Tuesday.
