Jillian Moore

Jillian Moore is currently having a show at Velvet da Vinci in San Francisco. The piece above is wood and mixed media. The three below are fiberglass.
The color in this one is really nice.

Part of her artist statement: "Their forms are softly curving, bulbous, and juvenile in proportion˜vulnerable. All of them appear to be in stasis, either terminated in transition or seeking our bodies for shelter until a phase of their life has been completed. Their motives are sometimes suspect, but so are ours."
These next three are electroformed and painted.

Andrea Wagner

I really like Andrea Wagner's work. She has a lot of series. This one above is a part of a series of medals to reward yourself.
She works a lot in bone china and she forms and colors are really nice. Go to the website, there's a lot of pictures. She's interested in combining kitsch, beauty, and the disturbing. Cool!


So yesterday I was trying to find this jewelry artist I had been telling Dillon about. I didn't remember her name but I did remember that it didn't sound like a really complicated name. I thought I might have blogged about her at some point, but of course, I had not. I spent a decent amount of time going back and forth and up and down lists of the side of blogs, following links until I found this. And then I thought to myself...if only I had blogged about this when I came across it. Jan, what can I say? When you're right, you're right.
Basically, I'm going to try and step it up.

So I meant to post t his a while ago....but I've been doing a weekly guest blog post on Annie's blog. It's usually every Friday, so check it out.
Anyways, I've been interning with her, also mostly on Fridays and its been really cool. I've learned a lot of business practices and a lot of smart ways of working. I did Crafty Bastards. I been practicing riveting. Fridays are good days.
