Squeezed this in. Getting hard to find a place to hang my junk. Best friend Jeannie gave me the lighted statue.
PV Workshop Project
I love your piece. SW work fascinates me with its neatness and colors. I really envy ppl who can do pique assiette well.
That is Charming! I love it; truly inspiring (and I need some inspiration right now).
Thanks, WACKY. StJohnsGypsy sent me a link to Susan's Facebook - I'm not a member - check out her FB for more pictures. Her other students' work was fabulous. I just don't have access to vintage china like they do in CO. Susan and her following work in very small shards, and hardly leave any grout space - very nice technique.
SILVA: Force yourself to work on something small - it'll come.
oooh I didn't know you were taking Susan Wechsler's workshop. her work is really tight and beautiful isn't it? that is really really lovely - great color combinations. Do you make your own substrate for these?
VERY tight, which is nice. I could have cut this out, but Susan insisted. She sent our substrates to us b/f we left. One other student had this shape, which S. calls a Tuscan Window. If I'd cut it, I'd not have put the little wings on the sides, and made a more iconic top. Rest of the students had large Spirit Houses, which I didn't want. She was very accommodating. I'm gonna cut a window soon and mosaic it completely different - w/climbing roses and real vintage lace curtains. I can see a window box w/porcelain flowers too. Dreams!!!
ooh interesting! I'm gonna go see her work on her FB page and see if I can see all the different window styles.
I know what you mean about the china, its definitely what sets her little dresses apart from other ppl's,
I can't wait to see what you come up with on your own.
I am sitting at work, less than five minutes away from Susan's studio. I should probably take advantage of my location, huh?
DEFINITELY. You'll learn lots from her. Better yet, why doncha start saving to go to her workshop in PV next year. She's making a wonderful niche. Check out this site:
It looks great !! You do good . I think I am lost some where . I did do a cross for a little girl who has cancer and they are doing a benefit.and a butterfly .
