2012 Studio Tour planing sessions and getting to know you….
We have had to switch up our business meetigns to plan the tour for this year, and you know, we are loving it. Participants are taking turns hosting each meeting. The meetings are collaborative, fun and we get to see each other’s studios while getting to know each other. This is area nice win!
For Heather, pottery is imbued with the emotions of its creator. Days spent labouring over a piece, progressively transforming states unitl it is ready to be revealed to the world. Every piece is made to carry her joy of the wilds woods, passion for clay and her spirit that will continue to be felt at every touch for the entire span of its life.
Nick’s interests have always been drwn to the beauty of glass and the way in which it can attract the eye. For Nick, there is beauty in the way color can make one feel, in the way light can transform a piece, and in the way optical distortions can play illusions on the beholder. Always drawing inspoiration from what draws his eye; the undulations of water, sunlight playing on the surface of a creek, the splashes of color in nature.
I cannot help myself. When I visit artist’s studios I always look for the palette. I think they can be quite telling. Mine is orderly and clean and well… precise.. laid out from light top dark. You get the idea.
And then there is Ed Coleman’s. I think this is so much fun! Just look at his palette. Heaps of vibrant gooey oil paint just waiting for brush. Absolutely delicious!
So, many of us are busily creating away getting ready for the KINGS COUNTY STUDIO TOUR June 9th and 10th.
The snow may be flying and our noses are chillin’ but that does not stop us from planning the 2012 Kings’ County Studio Tour. We have a call out to participating artists to submit their updated information and photos of thier most recent work. Come visit this site often as we we will be adding new information regularly.
