yesterday after work i stopped at tijuana flats, thinking i’d pick up something real quick and head to the studio. a dish of flautas later i was so stuffed i could barely make it home. i always forget with american food you can only eat half. you must take half home or your belly will burst. you think, oh it’s so good, and there’s only a couple more bites. no, you really have to take that bit home don’t you?
i finally made it into the studio at about 9. i tried watching pushing daisies on tv, but my mind kept floating back to the bush and the big, as of yet unnamed, pile of coils in the studio. i was itching to get the bush done, so it can start drying and getting ready to be fired.
i worked for three solid hours. i got a lot of height on the coil monstrosity. this is going to be kind of a tree, but i haven’t made any leaps yet as to how it’s going to look.
the bush got some new pods on it. i left about 7 pods on a ware board hardening up all day and they got a little too hard, so i had to pitch them. i pinched out four more pods, and some “leaves” to fill in space around the the pods. I’m going to add a texture to the rest of the bush that will not make it too hard to move. i also decided to add 4 cut outs to the bottom of the bush to help with moving it.
here is a shot of my studio space. it’s full!
