Home, Snowy Home

Home again! It’s snowing. A few days ago, I was wandering around in a tank top and shorts, and now I am home and it is snowing. I coped with my Texas withdrawal by starting some seedlings for the garden… hot weather things that need a good run-up to the growing season, and some cold weather things to be planted out under row covers in early May.

In other news, I’ve also started my next gallery project. About two (or was it three?) years ago, I was interviewed and photographed, along with a bunch of other people, for a book on young craftspeople in the province. One chapter focusing on each of us. The arts community being the size it is, everyone in the book is a friend, or a friend of a friend, or at the very least an acquaintance. A lot has happened to us since work started on the book… three people moved away, two people signed up for the inaugural year at the Quidi Vidi Plantation, a bunch of us have had solo gallery shows (one person is currently getting ready for a solo show, opening soon), some have even had their work in The Rooms. It’s been a very eventful stretch of life.

And this April, the book will be released. There’s going to be something of a to-do in the Craft Council Gallery for it, and we’ve been asked to each contribute a piece. After the teacup show, I figured I’d keep the momentum going, so I’m planning a literary teaset. I’ve done a little preliminary research of Norse eddas and dwarves, so I know where I’m going with the cups; now I just need to decide whether to carve in the dragon’s scales, or add them on after, all sculptural-like.
