ARt League ceramics

Coming to the end of my first class at the art league, ceramics with Toni Rosenbaum.  Very nice teacher, great demos and a very chill vibe, you can experiment and work at your own rate which is just right for me.

This week did an art fashion show in Patchogue which was nice but not well attended.  I think they will learn and do this better next year.

I am starting to teach a class tomorrow at 5 towns college, I am a bit worried by ability to translate and teach what the kids are looking for will not be adequate.

Always the fear of failure.  Always never quite good enough.  I guess the life of an artist.  It is a difficult life, but the ones who are so self confident, I rarely trust that.

First post for the ART LEAGUE!

This is my first post for my new residency at the Art League of Long Island.

I began my first ceramics class last week, it is  a Tuesday morning/afternoon class and I am looking forward to getting back to work on my slab pieces I had worked on in the past.



this was the piece I created last week. 
also this week I am taking a solarplate workshop with ChrisAnn Ambry and am looking forward to that on Wednesday.

Thursday Wendi and I are performing for the gala at Chashama at 1 world trade center.  I am still painting the hats for this event and it will come down to the wire.

poem......



Coasting through time
Catching a big wave
Riding the tube like a wormhole
Into a futuristic city

Everything is really clean
The air is super clean
There are a lot of floating vehicles
The fashion is retro Jetsons

It is an illusion of course
I see the poverty at the perimeter
It is a clear line
As If I were standing on a stage or something

It’s  funny there are no people around today
Perhaps it is Sunday, and people are at the park
Eating brightly colored ice pops
And watching strawberries float in the sky

They are lighter than air by the way and disappear
Into the sun
Where they probably explode
Into the space between planets

We possess the ability to step into the timeline
Slow it down, speed it up
Dance upon the moment, the edge of the
The edge of the outer universe

I double down on reality
Amidst the pull
To floating again
While the song plays again, over and over

It is a sign
Impressions held to the cheek
So much further to go
Feels like an eternity

I am thinking of the listener
The cadence of the breath
We go as far as we can together
Sometimes we part sadly

Grass
I stop myself and look up
Stars spinning
I am spinning

Again I will find myself
As a red wind reveals black lines
Swirling there is the silhouette
A black cat

I embrace
The bare tree
Sounds of rustling leaves
Long dead crunching

I see myself
The storm is over
I am on my back
I think it is me

The sun through clouds
So that is like kind of hazy
You know what I mean?
Bright in a weird way

I close my eyes
And let go
When we release into it
We become free of the helmet of self restriction

This helmet locks us down
To hear the sound you have to let go of thoughts
So you can hear
It is not trying to listen, it is listening.

He took a large large breath in
She calls him back
He is standing on the porch
Listening.
