Lots going on in the studio

There is a lot of good stuff going on in my studio right now! It makes me happy. I have stayed pretty much consistently busy for the past several months, making new work, firing it, and getting it into galleries, then once everything is out of the studio I'm making more and more work!
     Right now I am working on four pieces for this exhibit, and I'm relatively happy with the way they are coming along, glazing wise. I hope they will look cool once finished. My plan is to hang them in my studio before taking them to TRAC, just to see what they will look like. The three round pieces I might have to hang myself, we will see. The other day I started making vases and I am using bird imagery which is something I haven't done, EVER! And I really like the way they look. I have posted some images on my Facebook page. Four of them are kind of going to be like a mini series, I am playing with the idea of multiples and working within a series. I think it will be really fun to be working this way. I have also made some vases that are domed, they look like pills, so I am calling them my pill vases. I love the form I am just not really sure about how to glaze them, or put imagery on them. Again I will post pictures on Facebook.
     I am trying to get work together to put in the craft shop for when we reopen on May 3! Actually I have the work I just need to put a clear glaze on them. I also need to finish some platters that I want to put in the shop. I need to be making work for other galleries as well, I just don't know when I will find the time to do so.
    I am sitting here tonight in my studio with a list that I made for studio tour and what I am wanting to have for it, making little notes here and there. Deleting items adding items so on and so forth. I keep telling myself that I am going to start on studio tour months in advance, but it never really seems to work that way :(. Studio tour is the second weekend in June, and I have a long list of stuff I want to make. Fingers crossed! As soon as the tour is over I have three months until my next show, which is the Bakersville Creekwalk Festival, a show that I did last year and had fun. But the getting ready part sucked! But, I did make everything that I had on my list, so.
     Anyways that is my rant for the night, I guess I have a lot on my mind.
Stay Tuned and check out my Facebook page, Tria Turrou Studios. "like me" please.
