I have been attending Clearwater Folk Festival on and off since I was a child, but this year was my first year participating as a vendor. It was such a supportive laid back environment, painted with the music and laughter of the festival, the two days went by with ease and enjoyment. I met a diversity of amazing people (many whom complimented my work) all bringing some form of feedback and conversation. I learned many things this weekend, and I feel confident to push forth. The next few weeks will be spent rigorously working in the studio…
In order to raise my tuition for the Y.I.P program next year ( see yip.se), I have recently begun my latest project of making 500 ceramic cups, each representing a monetary donation supporting my study at Y.I.P. Just three weeks ago I arrived back in NYC from Basel, Switzerland, and within that short time I have been able to find a studio, a job, and several opportunities to show and sell some of my work. So far I have finished 100 cups, which will be sold at my Y.I.P Fundraiser at the Clearwater Folk Festival the weekend of June 18th along with a collection of sculptures and older wood-fired pots. I am excited that everything is moving along so quickly and I look foward to the interesting meetings I will have this summer as I carry this project foward.
