"Buffare" (brooch) 2010, composite and epoxy resin, paint, nickel silver scatter pins, 3.25" x 3.75" x 2"


I've been juggling pieces for the conference over the last few days. This first image is for the Silent Auction. I had hoped I'd have something already available, but after reviewing my options I decided to just go ahead and make a new piece. It's still a bit oozey today so you get a process shot for now. I'm hot for process shots: http://jillianmoore.blogspot.com/2009/03/back-to-work.html.

 

I've also been working on new pieces to bring with me. The conference provides an ideal setting for unveiling new work. The rest of the time I'm clumsily lurching around in my studio, working boring day jobs, or riding my bike when it isn't Iowa-pioneer-death-winter. Which is okay for smaller, more "practical" pieces, but these are activities that don't allow for the necessary grace and self awareness needed for my larger, more sculptural work. Occasionally I do take the big babies out--I wore a large piece http://www.flickr.com/photos/24933482@N02/2891507918/  on the bus once and overheard some high school students who were absolutely horrified by whatever was on me. Very fun.

 

Anyway, here's the new beast I'm working on. He'll straddle my shoulder. I hope he works because he's looking pretty satisfying right now. Sadly someone cut off his head, but he's alright (mostly.)

 

You get some general studio clutter as an added bonus.
