KCAI Clay : Post Y2K

Craft in America recently had a program featuring the Kansas City Art Institute Ceramics Department airing back in October '09. They just put up a Virtual Exhibition: KCAI Clay : Post Y2K. It's fun to see some of the pieces that were made by my classmates from back in the day.
My carved platter in the exhibition is 10 years old! ay ay ay!

renegade update: long overdue!

rain & i traveled to chicago in the beginning of december for the renegade holiday craft fair. a bag of weird cheetos was purchased at a gas station, called chester's puffcorn.

who would have thought it would keep us entertained during the long drive. it pretty much seemed like the puffcorns were the end cast offs of the cheese puff machine. what to do with these weird things? make them a new product! they kinda are like cloud animals...sooo...i give you the cheese puff animals.
and now back to the serious stuff. the show was a success!
here are a couple images of my display.
ok, back to the silliness.
the whirlwind weekend was over and as we were packing up and leaving the fair, we managed to sneak in a couple quick photo booth pictures. we were NOT prepared for the first round of pictures...we realized the machine was already taking pictures while we were still getting settled. doh!
please see below.
this was by far the best set.
