Thanks to the always inspirational
I happened upon a post she wrote about a sculpting class she was taking called The Sandman. When I saw the sculpted images I recognized them immediately as the work of
Keely Reichman, a fantastic artist and friend I'd taken a few jewelry classes with years ago.The class she mentioned was being held in someones home only about 30 minutes away from my house! There was one spot left. On a complete whim, I decided to call and snatched the spot.
Now I didn't take as many pictures as I wanted to, but I did snap a few of my "Sandman Moon" guy in process. This is him before I added his mouth. Then what he looked like after his first coat of teal and lavender highlights. And finally, with his dark patina. I must say, I'm really happy with him. Working with paper clay was so forgiving and satisfying. And Keely is a patient and generous teacher. Thank you, thank you Keely for sharing your talent and designs with us! I loved it and can't wait to try it again!
This whimsical little crew is part of a collection I believe will be for sale at Keely's upcoming show next month in Fullerton. Every first Friday downtown Fullerton sponsors Artwalk where all sorts of shops feature various artists in their stores. It's a lot of fun. On Oct. 1st the Friday night before Glitterfest, Keely will be at Otto.If I can get myself together the night before my little show I'll be there too! Check it out if you get the chance.
Ciao for now!
