I have not felt so excited by fresh ceramic work since I found Michelle Summers' work. I am totally in awe of these pieces by Nicole Kowalski Aquillano. She is currently a masters candidate at RISD and her work embodies so many of the things that I love about clay- freedom of shape, texture, pattern, and color. I'm so excited to start following her work!
I have to admit... Lately I am really having a hard time not having an outlet for my ceramic work. I am dying to break out some of the bisque I brought with me on the move and just start painting it with my underglaze collection. Only trouble is, is that I have no idea when I will be able to glaze fire it. We'll see what happens.
It's just that I am so focused on my textile work right now... in fact I have a Kickstarter project in the works that I can't wait to share with you guys... I just don't have the time to drag out all my ceramic supplies. Eeeek! Maybe I can figure some clay time in somewhere. Maybe.
