A New Direction!

A New Direction!

Excavation Complete!

by Kathy Oda on 05/02/17

Green Piece is divested of its plaster and as polished as it is going to get... This will be the first of many of my new Connections series and I am very pleased. I dropped it off at the Palmetto Hands Fine Craft Exhibition this afternoon. It's not finished enough to win a prize but I just want to get it out there...

 Green Piece. The first of many in my new Connections series!

Progress!

I am cautiously optimistic that I'm moving in the right direction! I took Blue Moon and Green Piece to the Honey Horn show this past weekend. I had 5 offers to buy Blue Moon but in all good conscience, I could not sell it since it is not stable. But I know I'm on the right track so am feeling pretty darn good about it!

 

Green Piece Unleashed!

Spent the weekend at a show cleaning the plaster off of this piece. I'm very pleased with how it's turning out. Still have several hours of cleanup left to go but have proved that my concept is sound... I can't wait to play with color combinations! This is spring green, yellow with a pop of red. I think the red looks a little ominous and disturbing.... hmmmm....

On another note, got home and found my kiln hadn't fired properly so am refiring the 3 pieces and keeping my fingers crossed!

An Archaeological Dig!

Feeling cautiously optimistic as I start to excavate the first of my new work... It appears to have fired correctly... We'll see how it goes as I scrape away layers of plaster...

 

Research and Development...

by Kathy Oda on 04/07/17

I've been working and refining my current body of work for over 8 years... It's time to stretch and challenge myself... I've long wanted to go more 3 dimensional with my glass but wasn't sure how I wanted to go about it... I took a class from Carol Milne to learn how to knit with glass and immediately realized that I could take the basics and take it in a new direction...

6 months later, I still do not have a complete piece out of the kiln....  This painting that I bought by John Stillmunks reflects my bit of frustration perfectly! Patience is a virtue... I'm close...so close...It's all about the journey, right?
