Workshop






Jean Cacicedo taught a workshop on doing a design journal for my guild. We had two days of creating. She had a list of words that we put in our book and were to circle all that applied to us. We were to work with a motif that represented us. Everyone tells me their stories-I'm honored that they feel they can-so I think of myself as an ear. What a crazy motif to pick! I abstracted it and was very surprised at all the designs I could get using this strange thing. You see it above.
We were to design a teapot, I used my ear but overlapped part of it. I also added a handle, spout, and lid then overlapped part of it to get a better proportion. I rather like it.
For the Pattern exercise, I used the teapot cutouts, exploded them and made Sound-an ear thing again. Can you hear it?
