I am so excited for all of the possibilities and great things to come this year. This final semester at school is sure to be the best yet. I am finally taking enamelling which I am already in love with. This is the one class that I just couldn't wait to take. I spent my afternoon today doing some fun samples (not the samples I need to do for my homework this week, but samples nonetheless!)
In less than two months I have a show at the Anna Leonowens Gallery which I am not as panicked for as I thought I would be. I will be posting lots of pictures as the work progresses in the following weeks.
As far as school goes I am also in studio this term which I am also excited about but with mixed feelings. It's strange to be in studio level being an interdisciplinary student rather than a jewellery degree student. I get the distinct feeling that not all of the degree students feel that I deserve to be in there with them. That's okay though, I will have fun proving them wrong.
It's unfortunate that interdisciplinary work isn't promoted and encouraged more, I really wish that it was. That's one of the things I loved about Sheridan is that we were in such close quarters with the other studios. In fact I have heard that the students this year are all participating in a big cross disciplinary collaboration project. I am so jealous, I so wish that such a project existed while I was studying there. I don't know if it's just because this type of thing has been on my mind a lot lately but the work of Pia Wüstenberg just came to my attention. She fuses several media together to create these fantastic stacking vessels.
