Have mixed up an experimental batch of "papercrete" ;-) looks like some interesting possibilities, have to play with some surface techniques next. Learned there is a drying time issue to contend with, but at least making a few more steps at creating.
Beginning again to work in the studio after tooooo...many dormant years. It's a bit more daunting than I like to admit, but it is going on, new work coming soon!!! ~ljl~
I have done handbuilt raku/pit fired ceramics and jewelry in the past. As I begin again to do art, after a long hiatus, I am exploring more the making use of available materials through reuse/repurpose and recycleing to see what magic can be made from what some would consider trash. Art is a visual language spoken through color, texture, form and line that I want to explore in places I have never gone before.
Artists I like
Joseph Cornell, Pat Steir, Beverly Pepper, Louise Nevelson, Picasso, Antonio Gaudi, Jasper Johns, Robert Rauschenberg, Georgia O'Keefe, Brancusi, Niki Saint de Phalle, oh so many more.....
Sacred geometry, crop circles, moon, stars, space, the universe and all it's magic. The internet and having access to the world at my fingertips. Good health, healthy lifestyle and longevity, since it seems to be taking forever to figure out what I want to be when I grow up;-)
Lynda, Many thanks, I am honored that you appreciate my project Geohousekeeping: A New Single House,
The materials are cement, steel, aluminum and glass. Your idea is not impossible, we 'll see!
