Music is important to my work and how I work. In the studio, I usually have some music on in the studio. I like to listen to something that has a good beat or rhythm. Lately I have been listening to prog. rock. I like songs that gradually build up to a climax. It kind of echo's how we work. We start making things and gradually work our way to the climax, which would be the final firing. Some of the bands that I listen to are Isis, Tool, Ben Harper and the Relentless 7, Minus the Bear and Radiohead.
A few more weeks to go into the semester. Firing four kilns a week. Trying to get some packets together to send out to some galleries. I feel like I am starting to get a consistent body of work. I think when you start out in clay you want to try everything and find what fits you. An artist is always evolving and improving their work.
