Lost & Found

Whenever I go back home to Maryland for a visit, I always love to rummage through my room and look through all the artwork that I have done over the years.  I have all kinds work:  paintings, drawings, etchings, silk screenings, sculptures, pottery, etc.  Some of it is embarrassing to stumble upon and some is not so bad.  I have a stack of drawings and sketches from my anatomy and figure drawing class in college that I am rather proud of.  I also have a self-portrait that is hiding in my closet that I am not so proud of.  I think it is scary looking.  I usually crack up whenever I see it!  I just could not conquer that project!  I still enjoy going through my work.  I often have an”Oh, I remember this” moment.  This vase was one of those moments.  It was on a shelf in my closet.  It was one I had done in college that has beautiful crystal formations on it.  (Ivory and Manganese colorants.)  I was last home in April for one of my baby showers and brought this piece home.  It is actually a really nice vase.  A bit heavy feeling in the foot, but it has a nice shape and great crystals.  I brought it back to New Hampshire with me and ground the bottom smooth.  On Mother’s day I filled it with a fresh bouquet of pink carnations I had received…I am after all a mother to be!  I love rediscovering pieces like this.
