A huge thank you to everyone who showed up to the Maine College of Art lobby tonight! I’ll try to be there next month as well with even more lovely mugs.
Take care, friends!
If you’re out and about in the Portland, Maine arts district this Friday, I’ll be selling some of my work in the Maine College of Art lobby from 5-8 pm.
I will only be able to accept cash or check. Still working on getting a device that the Square reader will work on!
Hope to see a few of you on Friday evening!
Lots of love,
Glaze-Carved Tulipiere by Emily Rose Bourne, 2013.
Thrown and altered porcelain with carved and inlaid brown underglaze, green underglaze, satin white glaze, and glossy white glaze, cone 10 gas reduction.
Tulipieres were developed during the tulip mania in 17th century Holland. Tulips are meant to be grown in these vessels, rather than merely cut and displayed. The removable lid allows for easy access to the interior for bulb placement and care.
White Glaze Carved/Inlaid Vase, 2013.
Porcelain, glossy and satin white glazes applied with my carve/inlay process. Cone 10 gas reduction.
This is one of my favorite surfacing processes to use, especially with white glaze. It’s time consuming, finicky, and dusty, but worth it in the end.
More detailed view of one of the new vases I’ve been working on (pre-smoothing, I did finish the thing, just look at the form. Love the form. Mmm form.)
Running on practically no sleep and my eyes have gone crazy, but here, have a shitty webcam pic of me pointing at a pretty thing I made (will have more pics soon,probably maybe i have no idea.)
Gotta make a second pretty thing. Hope everybody’s doing well.
The closing reception of the Mudlarks Senior Ceramic Showcase will be from 5-7 tomorrow night (February 7) in the front window display area of the Maine College of Art, 522 Congress Street in Portland, ME.
All are welcome to come by and chat with the artists tomorrow evening.
The show includes work by Emily Bourne, Conor Braun, Nicholas Legere, Cassidy Seidler, Hillary Stucker, and Devin Timmins. Click on the images for the names of the artists.
See you there!
An Itty Bitty Dragon was spotted on the corner of Union and Fore this afternoon. See her cunning use of camouflage against the red bricks of Portland. It may be snowy and windy out, but the Maine weather doesn’t intimidate her one bit.
My first itty bitty dragon found her way into Portland, ME! She’ll be joined by another tomorrow.
Having trouble with my main clay body still, but managed to make ten more itty bitty dragons this afternoon.
Greetings, Portland Mainers!
These itty bitty dragons will be taking over the peninsula to strike joy into the hearts of humanity!
Every day one dragon will find its way into Portland. I will document their new home. If you fall in love with one of them and want to give them a new home, please submit a picture of their new abode!
Good night, sweet friends. There is a big snowy day ahead of us tomorrow.
Hey friends! Tomorrow I will be starting a project to spread cute little dragons all around the Portland Maine peninsula. Hopefully people will take pictures of these cuties and share the love.
