For all my friends on Facebook, I posted a little while back that I had applied to an art book for possible publication of my sculptures. Well, I found out that they have accepted me! In fact, I won the First Place award in the clay catagory, and that means I get a 2 page spread in the book! The only higher award would be the Grand Winner, which gets the cover of the book, so needless to say, I was quite excited!
Here is an excerpt from the email they sent me:
First of all, congratulations on your acceptance into Art Buzz, The 2011 Collection! Your work has been awarded 1st Place in clay! Choosing the winners was a very tough job and we are proud to include your work in this premier, contemporary visual arts publication. (for a complete list of the winning artists, log on to www.artbuzz.org/book.html) You will also be given a complementary Standard Plus listing on ArtBuzz.org, if you don't already have one.

So I'm quite excited by this and I am really looking forward to getting one of the books!
In other news, I've been firing and glazing, and trying to finish 2 pieces for the upcoming exhibit starting in January for the Cabarrus Arts Council. I wrote about it in a previous blog post you can find here. I won't be able to show the finished pieces, but I think a detail shot or two would be safe. :) Once they are completely finished, I'll be sure to post a little something here!
I hope you are having a great week! What have you been working on? I'd love to see some of your beautiful new work!
