Perfect way to end a busy day: Listening to the podcast My Favorite Murder, drinking a glass of wine, and finishing up some tiny pots for my latest class project. 😊

Pieces from my latest class project 😊 . . . . . .
I began by thinking about the concept of space and that in order to have a lack of space there must be something defining what the space should entail. As such, my idea for creating a boundary and then using the area inside to construct the negative space began to form. I wanted to create something that not only solved the problem but also had a functional aspect. As a result, the final product is a series of flower vases that in and of themselves hold the negative space as part of their functional form.

Protest Tea Pot! (in the works)
Because if we're gonna host a revolution, we're gonna need a lot of tea. ...
One of my assignments for the class I'm taking at UW was to make 5 tea pots- specifically 2 of which have to be conceptual. My history with ceramics has predominately been straight functional ware so this has definitely beem something out of my wheel house.
I started by thinking about the traditional view of "tea time" as a predominantly gender specific activity. This lead me down a rabbit hole of thoughts about the development of tea time and how women have used that time to *brew* sedition and revolution. For instance, when Jane Hunt invited Elizabeth Cady Stanton and a small group of other women over for tea and thus beginning the suffragist movement in America.
From there, my Protest Pot just started to gain a life of her own. I'm am so excited to get this lady fired and am soooo hoping she doesn't crack or break along the way. I think I'll keep a rough textured exterior and maybe a textured off-white matte glaze.
Also, this proud women currently stands at.. like... a foot and a half tall.

Prototype from my class project! The design is off of traditional Turkish Wine Jugs (google it- they cool) typically used for holidays and religious ceremonies. They sling the jug over their arm (like a purse.. but of wine #winepurse) to pour the wine.
Thursday productivity: full of coffee and snuggles. ❤
I couldn't rely on our state's shape for help with this one so I opted for a more creative representation of Wyoming: our state flower- Indian Paintbrush. ❤
#GreatWesternTrail is a stand alone great game. I think this is the perfect game to play if you've played Settlers or TTR (Ticket to Ride) and are interested in more complex strategy. It's not as complicated as, say, Agricola or Terra Mystica and incorporated more communal play than Puerto Rico or even Eclipse. So far, we've only played 2 player but I think 3 or 4 player will be super fun. Overall, 8ish rating. You're welcome.
