Been working, even though it doesn't seem like it on the blog. Maybe not working as much as I should be, but trying not to beat myself up over it. Anyways, pulled out the gauche and been sketching, thinking about water and the way it moves. Finally did some translations into enamel yesterday. Both use china paints (yeah, back at those china paints) and the opaque sample was much more successful than the transparent one. But neither really look like water. Still, they suggest the look of water and maybe that's all I need.
I hold a BFA in Jewelry and Metalsmithing from Kent State University and an MFA in Metal Design from East Carolina University. In 2012, I curated the international, juried exhibition "Hot Under the Collar" and was the Artist Fellow in Fine Metals at Peters Valley Craft Center. I currently teach adjunct at Craven Community College in New Bern, NC.
