It is the new year, 2014, wow. I don't want to make this a resolution to write more often, I will just say it is an idea.
I have a couple of things rolling around that I would like to think about doing. One of them is to take a class from Keke Cribbs at Pilchuck. It is two weeks and expensive. First of all I have always loved her work. I love the color, but mostly I love the story aspect of her work. I love that she is not tied to a medium but to an idea. I love working with glass but I have a vague feeling that I have been bumping my head on a "glass" ceiling. I am not sure if my feeling is a limitation of my creative ability and imagination or more of a log jam that needs to get cleared out. I may not be able to fix that all by myself. That is what makes me wonder that taking the class from KeKe might be the kick I need. If nothing else it might make the answer to the question clearer to me.
The other thing is that I am constantly being asked to teach classes. I have done it in my small studio. But if I do that I am not actually able to work myself. I signed up to do our local outdoor show this year so that is on my plate. But that is not my only hesitation. I have not taken a billion classes. I have been pretty holed up in my studio. Therefore, I haven't learned all the latest and greatest. I will have to do some work, experimentation, and testing before I really feel like I can do a good job with that. I mean I obviously know the nuts and bolts but I would like to offer some information on current ideas.
Well, there you have it, two ideas...rolling around, kind of like marbles. They are not really going any where exactly.
