The Show & Tell session at last week’s CAC Zoom meeting (attended by over 40 CAC people on December 15), was amazingly varied and lots of fun to watch. If you missed it (or want to watch it again), you can view that part of the meeting on YouTube, thanks to Linda Mariano. (FYI: it’s private & can only be located via our link.) Here is the link to the video: https://youtu.be/dRVIqydOBh4
Below are some of the artworks that were shown during the last meeting's Show & Tell. First off, Amy Pitt's beautiful (and delicious) challah loaf, and Anne Shulenberger's second piece in the current "Trashformations" Art Tag cycle, which was created using various ceramic odd & ends as well as some cut-up images of her old artwork, all mounted on one of her own ceramic platters.
Shown below on the right, Patty Taylor shared 4 of her beautiful ceramic faces decorated with several different non-traditional materials, including "Buff & Rub" (metallic wax), acrylic paint, and fingernail polish. Her preferred methods are pit-fire, saggar or raku fire, but with the studio closed and all the usual materials/equipment unavailable, she has been experimenting - with amazing results. Can't keep a good artist down!
And from Theresa Kuo: "Here's my contribution to the Show and Tell on the 15th. I felted the slippers from rovings that were left over from spinning wool. The felting is not as tight as it should be, but at least they fit, unlike the first pair. The first pair would have been perfect if I had one foot size 9 and the other size 4. The soles are from leather scraps a friend gave me years ago. Being a pack rat has its advantages!"
Theresa is such a versatile artist/craftswoman!
Jim Anderson contributed the photo of his darts hitting the bullseye, below right. During normal times he likes to compete with others in local pubs, but since March he has been honing his skills at home. Looks like it's paying off, too!
