Haystack and Maine. What an incredible fortnight, which nourished me exactly as I needed. This is duck #1.
Paper Connection that was corded and his face is made from cords persimmon dyed and unwound in Korea.
Yoko was an incredible technical assistant in the clay studio and encouraged me to do it for the first time! I found some wonderful people there, including one I had met last summer at Penland. No surprise, we had two metal folks from Penland in the group as well.
Naomi pointed it out while we were eating and we all laughed.
Wendy Maruyama at the winter office about the Japanese internment in this country. I could barely stay in the gallery because of how heavy the emotion was.
Carolanne turned her car around so we could say hello.
More as I get my head and body together, as there is so much to share. In the meantime, huge gratitude to Haystack for making this gem of a residency. And it's here to stay, so be sure to apply next year!
