Week 5

The closer it gets to my thesis show the less I sleep and the more I workout to release stress. I keep making new things for the show and firing it and once it is completed I realize how I wish i would have made it. I feel like I am going to keep having this happen up until the show date. I have been spending a lot of time figuring out how I am going to build the shelves to display my work on. Each time I thought I had the idea flushed out something always failed or I would change my mind. Once I make the shelves I know I will relax a lot and feel more confident about this show. The positive thing is is that my dad is finally back from being out of town for work so I have someone who can help me trouble shoot and make them.

While I have been focused on troubleshooting stuff for my show and making things for it I have also been thinking about what I want to do after my show. After my show I really want to buckle down and start applying for residences as well and pushing the body of work I have been making. I really think that it would be fun to crete an event where I serve food and people come and interact at a community table while eating form my pots. I think it would be interesting to watch how my pots create conversation or don’t create conversation. I feel like I have a lot of things I would like to do before I graduate but do not have enough time.
