About once a month Laura and I will be posting a “working table” of what is happening in our studio work. I will do that in the pictures below but FIRST I want to post a few pictures of this newly created hand-crafted postcard. We have been creating these postcards for the past few months as a gift to our readers and subscribers. I am now going to be picking from our newsletter subscriber list. You can sign up if you would like.
I have been sending antique book pages through my Epson printer to see what would happen.This process produced a “wow” from me when it came out of the printer. Not sure how I will utilize this yet, but for now I created a postcard with a few of these prints (torn and re-assembled of course).
A friend took this photo below. I think the piece is finished, but I am sitting with it awhile to see if I need to adjust anything. Once I feel it’s done, it’s off to be professionally photographed and then out to the world.
The doors are meant to be opened by the viewer. Inside are delicately etched pieces of glass, soil, and maps. I etched this glass with my trusty DREMEL tool.
…This series of work is an inquiry into how we seem to be less connected to our humanity by becoming a more developed society. Being in a historic age of science and technology, that attempts to quantify anything it can get it’s hands on, I wonder about the experiences I have that go beyond what “knowledge” can tell me. I wonder how I balance my intuitive connection with the natural world while enjoying the comfortable suburban life I am living….
This new series of work is really keeping me humming in the studio. Any thoughts on the work or suggestions on materials, don’t be shy~ let me know by leaving a comment.
I sure appreciate you reading along.
