Studio Update!

Number one, I now have my ceramics work on view and for sale! Shop Studio Art :-)

Two, I've been really busy in studio - not only making art (some commissioned!) but running open clay, leading potion parties and assistant teaching a bunch of rad Brooklyn kids at Artshack!

Three, I've sold some of my ceramics, to strangers even!

Four, I'm excited about the newest collection I started working on in studio today. My groovy Series No.2 but inverted! If you're curious about my process and progress, follow Bijouxxx on Instagram - I post stories regularly!

These puppies have sold! Glad they're in new homes with people who appreciate them <3

And here are a few shots of what I've been up and currently working on - enjoy!

This new collection of work which is a combination of Series No.2 and its inverse, should be out of the kiln by midweek. Party on.  - sarah

Monday Update | Vessels, Utensils and Snakes, Oh my!

This past week I've worked out a few ideas in clay that I'm really excited about. I've been thinking about vessels - for food, for plants, etc. that have a non-traditional or modern spin so I used the Extruder to create thick coils which I wrapped around rectangular and oval containers. Also this week, working with hand built utensils, coffee mugs and filters, bowls, and a new pet snake which I painted with colored slip. I wanted the snake to look as though it were hiding beneath a flowering plant :) So happy with the results!

Monday Update | Pre holiday work and moving into 2017

Before the holidays I started working on hand building (with the exception of the carafe) some ideas I had from past and present sketches. Tons of ideas and a lot of concentrated hours in the studio, so I feel really accomplished moving into 2017. Today I glazed the bisqued pieces so they're in the final stages - christmas comes soon :-) 

From top to bottom --

  • braided spoons
  • incense burner
  • plates w/ illustration (katzeye)
  • primary shapes/colors serving set
  • sake carafe and cups
  • oval tray (for a friend!)
  • earrings
  • LRC dice game (two sets)

This week I'm making hollowed out vases from some sketches I did on christmas eve - psyched!

Leaf Art | Post Election Day 2016 Distraction

It's a really somber, grey day in Brooklyn. People are withdrawn and I'm feeling the mood, so instead of diving into a hole of fascinated horrors of the next 4 years, I made art with leaves I gathered from my neighborhood. Yes, I was that weird girl, alone, with headphones, dancing and picking up leaves.

I don't like to discuss politics much, but I will say that this election doesn't mean you can't or shouldn't continue carefully and beautifully crafting the world you live in. Trump may not uphold your values, beliefs and goals and he will shape and impact our life in broader terms, possibly negatively, but on a day to day basis, we're creating the small world we live and love in so let's focus on what's around us and just keep making shit fucking beautiful.

Create art. Build community. Love your life.
