end of 2010

Tomorrow is last day of the year, look back this year I am really thankful for everything 
And I have been thinking what I can do to give back.
So I decided donate some money to animal organization that help with animal and environment.

But it become really hard for me to pick which one?
WWF or the Nature Conservancy?
 I did some research for it.
so I checked their webstie and Charity navigator 
and their review came out about the same.

In the end I pick WWF for this year, next year I will try the nature conservancy.

The reason I picked WWF is because they have something call Panda Page.

which can be a donation page for people comes to my page wants to donate money to WWF.
well...I still have to learn about that little bit more before I can really talk about it :-P

anyway, next year(in two days) I want to do more!!
not just for my pottery, but for animals too!

Happy new year, and thank you for reading my blog :-)

Gravy boat

Awhile back I got invited to be part of the 50 Gravy boats show
As soon as I got invited I made 4 different gravy boats. And only these two made it to my final list.
This shows have many artist that I really look up to so I was really exited,
Hopefully I can get some good responds.
also this is a really good exercise for me to make a form that I never worked before, 
really open up different possibility for my work.
so I made a couple more after the first batch and it's totally different from the first batch, 
so from two gravy boat Jason and other friends pick the first one (yellow glaze)
everyone think the yellow glaze looks better, even though I like the second gravy boat better 
but I have to agree with my friends...
Anyway, I can't wait to see all the awesome gravy boats,
and if you want more info you can visit DVC's website here.

The show will be at DVC and online from 11/1-11/23

Once upon a time: teacher and student

I was surprised to notice that I haven't update my blog for awhile...
so I thought just to share what I saw last week in Trax gallery
last week was the opening for their show "Once upon a time: teacher and student"
it is John Neely from Logan, Utah and Forrest Lesch-Middelton from Petaluma, CA
I always admire John Neely's work and his skill making such a well function teapot with simple form but with strong present. I was so happy to be able to see his work in person, too bad I couldn't afford it...
And Forrest Lesch-Middelton's work is so well done, you can also see he have a strong influence by John Neely but still be able to put his own idea and evolve the form. 
I was not able to take many photos because the room was so packed...
the show still up till Nov,7 if you miss it. you should go!!!

thinking of holiday...

I have been working in my studio little bit more now after the crazy summer camp is over.
I have been thinking about my pricing.
all my work are about $30+
so many people don't want to spend that much money all at once .
 and I don't want to lower my price either because I put in so much time into each pieces.
so I decided to make a line that is smaller so people can afford my work.
anyway, I am still testing out my idea and see how they will come out.
and these are the "shot cups" hope people will like them :-)

CAA- Ceramics Annual of America

Last weekend in Fort Mason was the  event for Ceramics Annual of America 
I was really excited to see all the different artist and their works. 
Many of my friends are in the show,so it made the trip even more special.
Above is Juan Miguel Santiago's work, which I really really LOVE,
the surface, form and idea is just so right on. 
I Just love his statement, it's so witty! 
also, I got invited by Karl to be part of the gravy boat show in DVC.
can't wait to start working on that :-)

anyway, there are so many works to look at, 
I just got overwhelm by all the works so didn't take that many photos. 
wish you enjoy seeing my blog and get a little idea of this show :-)

Herb & Dorothy

I recently watched a documentary call "Herb & Dorothy"
it was really inspiring to watch.

Chronicling the story of unlikely art collectors Herb Vogel and Dorothy Vogel, filmmaker Megumi Sasaki demonstrates that it's not necessary to be wealthy in order to build a significant collection in this fascinating documentary. A postal clerk and a librarian, the Vogels share a passion for art, which they pursued over decades, becoming two of the most important collectors of minimalist and conceptual art with more than 4,000 pieces.

It really open up my mind of collect the work that I thought I can't afford it.
Now most of Jason and mine collection are mostly smaller pottery functionalware 
maybe... it will start to change soon....
anyway, if you want to see this film you can find in on Netflix, and you can watch it online.

playing with new app...

I LOVE my iphone,
because I love taking photo of random stuff all the time
and it's not so great to carry camera with me the whole time (because of the weight)
so iphone fix that problem for me :-)
anyway, I just want to test out the picture quality of the iphone
so I just want to post it and see it!
and these are my last batch before I took a break 
(because of the crazy summer camp, so can't make anything right now)
If they looks okay online, I might just use my iphone for all my etsy photos.
so... what do you think?

half way summer report

well....after all the craft show and summer camp, really tired me up
but after two weeks of watching endless youtube taiwanese TV and getting a iphone
I am all feeling better and ready to make more work :-) 
Last week whole week I was helping Jason setting up his show in college of Marin
It was a lot of hard work, we paint the pedestal, sanding pieces, touch up wall and many more.
but in the end it is totally worth it!!

well...while I was there, I took many photos with my new toy(iphone)
but still have to organize it before I put them on :-)
and sorry for not posting any Jason's work, 
because he don't want people to see his work till the artist reception
(Which is Sep,1 Wednesday from 7-9pm)
hope to see you there!!!
