Denny leaves for the National Clay Conference next week. I'm planning to write my paper for Theory and Crit, work on my studio spaces, which always need sorting, stay up late, sleep late...

The disk that I posted a few weeks ago stuck to the mold, so I will have t o destroy it to remove it. Looks like I will have to reformulate the papier mache' recipe as well. I am guessing that the plaster IN the recipe is what is causing it to stick even with a release agent (in this case, petroleum jelly).
These are some of my latest forms, sculptures that I am experimenting with at present...
