Next Friday, I head out to Pilchuck to help make over 110 centerpieces for their annual auction. All I know is they’re gonna look something like this but after nearly 3 months out of the studio, I’m itching to get back into it.
Pilchuck announced Lynn Everett Read as the designer for the 2013 Annual Auction Gala centerpiece. This is his sketch which will be the basis for the design. We will need to work out how to realize his vision in the context of a 20-30 person production team and then make over 100 0f them (as well as benefactor gifts) in the short span of two weeks.
Here’s a video showing how we make one of the glass studio’s products. As you can see, we work on a five-person team in a production line fashion, breaking down the process to increase efficiency as well as to allow for more focused training on each step.
Due to popular demand, I have resolved the glass underwear into a more-streamlined, production item. Following the most recent JamFactory product review, “Briefs” will soon be available in the JamFactory shops.
I’ve updated the site with some new photography. Check out the variation on my Aerie Series that may be the beginning of an exhibition series including specific bird species. I’ve also added a bottle and cup set to the Niche Series and some more glass panties. There will be more variations on the underwear to come!
I just put the finishing touches on a bunch of Aerie bowls, vases and jugs and delivered them to the JamFactory Morphett street shop. Some of it will also be going to the Rundle mall shop. So come on in to check it out and take some home!
Check out the recent photography I had done of the Aerie Series. Its a series that I’ve been developing since the end of last year and will be up for review by the JamFactory next week. Hopefully, that means it will be available from JamFactory outlets and others in no time.
