A day later than I should have uploaded, but oh well.
The next project I have been working on is…[drum roll please]
That is all. Just a few dozen small ceramic birds. For this project, we were allowed to pick our own ceramic adventure from Clay Bucket, and I picked an installation piece. Mind you, I have no idea where or how it will be installed, but I’ll cross that bridge when I come to it.
The basics of the project is the birds are in three positions: resting, getting ready to take off, and flying. They will be connected to a wall somehow in a… crescendo shape [Look at Picture 1].
There is a story behind this piece. I’ve actually wanted to make something like this since I started ceramics. When I was a little kid, my aunt Nancy was diagnosed with breast cancer. She beat it, and it went into remission. In 2012, it came back as bone cancer. Nancy passed away in 2014. She was an outstanding artist. She also loved bird watching. I want to dedicate this piece to her.
I also want to dedicate it to both my grandmothers, my mom, my cousin, my uncle, my dear friend, and everyone who has been affected by any type of cancer.
