Abandon Ship...

July has been a ridiculous month.  The basement work is finished (...good).  The bathroom renovation is dangerously behind schedule (...bad).  I had kidney stone surgery (...worse).  And my grandmother passed away (...awful).  My joomchi workshop at the Morgan happened (...better).  I'm taking a workshop this weekend with Velma Bolyard (...great).  And next week I'm in a four day workshop with Velma and Aimee (...awesome).

Here are a few shots of student work (below).  I was in recovery mode, so photography was not at the front of my mind.

And below you will find a very large sheet of joomchi that I made as a demo on sheet-joining.  It's about six feet by nine feet, which is a record for me...but I don't know about the rest of the world...let's just pretend it is.

Also, my indigo plants are being overwhelmed by weeds, and I can't seem to find the time to take care of them (...too many things on my plate at once...).  If anyone is interested, I'm offering a share of the final indigo crop to anybody who can help with the weeding.  It will probably take an entire day...but I will feed you.  And in a couple of months you'll get fresh indigo and some seed!

The TAA lecture and workshop went great.  Such an enthusiastic bunch of students!  Lots of mark making...

The next workshop is at the Morgan, July 19th & 20th.  Sign up here.  Now back to fighting this summer cold.
