How lucky am I? Two whole weeks at Penland School of Craft helping Jiyong Lee and Kirstie Rea as a Studio Assistant. These two are both amazing artist and incredibly skilled educators. I learned so much! Penland, as always, didn't disappoint.
Jiyong Lee and Kirstie Rea dropping knowledge.
We had the opportunity to visit some artist's studios while in North Carolina. These shots are from Mark Peiser's shop. What an incredible color in that tear drop piece.
I even had some time to practice new skills. Here's a finished shot of some of my lamination samples. All obsessively hand coldworked. I think you can see how some of my shape choice was influenced by our visit to Mark Peiser's studio.
