In a previous post, I mentioned that I participated in a live jury (without success) to become an exhibiting member of the Association of Clay and Glass Artists (ACGA). Well, a few months ago, I juried for the second time and got in! I'm thrilled - partially because it is not easy to jury in and partially because of the quality of the other exhibiting members.
Much of my exhibit remained the same as before but I also added in a few new pieces (below), substituting for smaller pieces.
I've been a little kiln challenged making larger pieces and I'm in the process of addressing this - step 1: buy larger kiln - done! Step 2: adjust firing schedule - still working on this part but I think I'm there :)
I have a few more pattern bar projects in process and will hopefully post photos once they're done. In the meantime, persistence is a good thing when venturing into new glass work although I am beginning to dislike the term "trial and error".
