Sounds like someone had jurying job yesterday! Yep, that was me. Three hours of succinctly assessing the local high school talent-at least a 1000 images I would guess-has me all warmed up for Summer.
Speaking of... we've only arrived home from our art meeting in the last hour and I am really quite excited about all of the wonderful projects that we have lined up for Summer and into Fall. But for now... I shall feed the dogs and.. heh.. read more blogs.
Oh, and.. it's time for another piece from the Graduate Review that wasn't!
This is my papier mache' Tree Bowl. It is molded from a large kitchen bowl and a smaller jello mold for the base. The base is made from 100% cotton papier mache and the top is an assortment of cotton, linen, recycled paper and plant material papier mache. I used a rotary tool to make the cut outs and then filled some of them with another, contrasting pulp and let that dry before sanding it all again with the same rotary tool. I used wood glue and paper pulp to join the two pieces and then a wet cloth to wipe it all off again. Most of it is very rough with very soft spots where there is a concentration on cotton pulp.
