Phone carrier dilemma!

This post is the other stuff involved in my journey with clay.

O.K., so let me see if I have it!  The sound of a computer generated voice now fills my thoughts as though I have a new best friend to converse with.  Yikes!  Battlestar Gallactica here we come (and if you notice they are back to using land lines on the star ships).  In the future we may have another word for land line on a space ship.

I remember a time when phone numbers use to start with evergreen or garfield, then the numbers would follow.  Aunt Valia and Uncle Emedio’s number was evergreen 24082.  I also remember when the land line phone companies were tweaking there phone networks and you would often get what was called party lines.  This meant that somehow a line would cross and a complete stranger would be on your phone line or, you could hear in the phone line a distant conversation others were having.  Proper phone etiquette back then was to pretend you did not hear someone else’s conversation as you stayed glued to the phone eating popcorn like it was Saturday night at the movies.  Come on, like phone tapping is a new thing.  Back then it was the norm.

Now, flash to today…  And, as a small business owner I thought it would be great to get a smart phone in order to accept credit card payment with the help of the square.  But, access to a data phone plan which would allow me to accept square payment does not fit in my monthly budget.  Yes, I (we, my husband and I) have a budget.  I would not have survived this long in the arts if I did not have a budget.  My best friend in high school convinced me to take an accounting and typing class and it ended up being one of the best things I ever did to keep me out of debt.  Oh yeah, it really is in the numbers.  This is one of the reasons I stopped selling at the “big” shows and even some “smaller” ones.  What, $1200.00 for a booth fee and you can’t pull up to your booth; and, oh sorry about the post in the middle of your booth; and the elevator is out so you need to carry your booth to the second floor; and, and, and……  O.K., so that is another story that I may never visit. 

 The past weak has been full of lots of new information.  Like which phone companies will take a current phone you are using if you switch companies and what phone unlocking means and oh, that company is a subsidiary so the mother company cannot help you and you are on your own.   Phone unlocking, is it legal or not?  Phone companies want you to think it is illegal but it is legal as long as you are not under contract (I think?).  But try getting the unlock number.  If you don’t survive doing this on your own, there are companies like Phone Ambulance on Mayfield Rd. in Mayfield Heights (Ohio of course) that can help you.  A great service if you need phone help.  The staff was amazing, friendly, knowledgeable and honest. 

 Anyway, I am going to try another carrier next week and see how that works out.  Wish me luck.

Work by Theresa Yondo
It has been a while since the last blog.  As an introvert, it is easy for me to get lost in projects and let a few things drop like blogging.  The summer has been full of work of course which included facilitating art therapy projects at the retirement community and studio work.  And other things such as vegetable gardening so we have food to eat throughout the year, house projects like cleaning and organizing and barn projects which include replacing the roof so the barn does not fall down.  You need to work hard to get what you have and then work harder to keep it!

As the fall gets a bit closer,  I am gearing up for a few things which you can read about below. 

Hello clay enthusiast!
Clay Class begins soon and will be 6 weeks long on Wednesday evening.
September 11th, 18th, 25th, August 2nd, 9th, and 16th.
The time is the same 6:30-9:00.  If anyone needs to come a bit after 6:00 and leave at 8:30 they can make arrangements ahead of time.
The cost is $150.00. 
Where?  See address at the end of this message.
There is one space open for throwing and three spaces open for handbuilding.
I will need to know if you will be
working on the wheel,
handbuilding or both.  Email me at the gmail account!

A few thoughts for today while drinking my morning coffee.

I need one.
I so want to conceptualize in my studio with no distractions and create. 
Except for the garden,
A distraction I can live with.
Growing and storing food to feed us through the year.
I am taking the month of August off from teaching privately.
My studio is going to become a jungle.
I clean my studio once a week so students have space to come on in and work.
Very excited!
I still will be working in an art therapy capacity with the residents at the retirement community.

Can I bottle the essence, for winter relief, like you bottle jam preserves?

Manipulating and molding the clay to spring forward with substance from your hands.
How far can you push the clay before everything crumbles?

Teapot and cup/mug!

Teapot and cup by Theresa Yondo
Teapot size about (H) 6.5 x 8.5 x 3.75 in.
Yesterday I unloaded some very nice work from the kiln.  It is nice to shed a tear of joy from success instead of sadness. Clay work is so very challenging with all the elements that control the medium.  You need to be a conductor guiding the wind, water, fire and air.  My studio will be open this Thursday from 6-8 for anyone wanting to stop by for a visit.

Yes, I am still working with clay!

Hello out there!

I am still diligently working with clay. 

I have recently received several emails and phone calls from patrons wondering where I am these days.  So, as you will not find me at the wonderful outdoor street fairs this summer;  you will find me diligently working in the studio getting ready for a few events.  I am mostly wholesaling to galleries these days or selling out of the studio.  You will find me next month at the Larchmere Sidewalk Sale outside Fiddlehead Gallery (more information to follow in another post).

Meanwhile, a little preview of some teapots, mugs, colanders, plates and a few other things I am making.

Spring activities!

The studio has been tugging on my mind lately.  As a creator of objects, I have been seeing a new direction to explore but need to cleanse the studio of clutter to continue.  I want to return to making more intricate objects like teapots and spice holder sets (salt and pepper sets).  So, I have been busy organizing and cleaning the studio along with all the other daily things that fill my life such as teaching and filling orders, visiting with Bruce and taking care of our property and traveling when I can.

I teach at a retirement community,  watercolors and ceramics.  The dear residents enjoy our weekly visits and activities.  The senior population have such amazing stories to tell.  I also teach privately out of my studio one evening a week to a group of amazing individuals who come and go throughout the year and love having access to the clay.    Then there is the steady filling of wholesale orders from American Crafts and Jewels.  I have waited 30 years for this gig.  And of course the few consignment shops I work with.  Thank you Val and Chris for your amazing dedication to Gestures and Liz at Ginko Gallery.  Ginko Gallery in Oberlin has been a steady consignment outlet for many artists work over the years.

With spring here, there are many additional activities to fit into a daily schedule.  Bruce and I have been starting seeds for our garden, getting the garden ready for planting, trimming trees, mowing the grass and keeping the ant population under control.

And, the traveling.  Last weekend I drove to Minnesota to finally attend the St. Croix Valley Pottery Tour.  That is one long drive from the Cleveland, Ohio area.   Seven host potters invited forty three potters for a total of fifty potters selling their wares.  What an amazing place to converse about clay and see pots, kilns, studios and life steeped in clay.  Thank you Minnesota potters for all your hard work.  You put on an amazing show.

Looking forward to filling up the kilns with new work.

Fountains of Youth - Small Porcelain Sculptures

Porcelain "Fountains of Youth" by Theresa Yondo
Small enough to hold in your hand
These are some of the New Work's I had on view at the Woman VI 2013 Show at Lakeland Community College.  To my surprise two of the three objects sold.  Usually collectors need to warm up to new ideas that I am working with.  I must say that I did feel as though these small sculptures which can be held in the palm of your hand encompassed a complete aesthetic idea.  I will see if I can transfer this idea to a larger scale at some point.

New Wax Resist Pattern

I love designing new patterns of wax resist.
Creating symmetrical pattern which radiates out from the center of a bowl has always grounded my inner spirit.  I just get lost in the moment and time seems to stand still when I develop a pattern that works for me in this tiny world of the universe where I live.

I often forget how difficult it is to work with wax resist but was reminded earlier this week when talking to a very accomplished ceramic artist who was having some difficulty with the technique so I decided to share a few tips.

First, I would suggest using Axner Wax Resist.  I find this resist to be the best on the market.  I use a less expensive wax directly on the clay body for waxing the foot.
Second, after waxing the foot I dip the bowl in a bucket of glaze to apply the first layer of glaze.  I may dip two or three bowls at a time and then wait only a few minutes before handling them again in preparation for the application of wax resist.  This is very important to only work with a few objects at each time as you need moisture present in the first layer of glaze so the wax does not peel off the surface. 

 I gently use a soft ebony pencil to sketch out the pattern I will be working with since once the wax is applied there is no turning back unless you wash everything off and start over.  Using a bamboo brush, I apply the wax. 

Next and this is really important!  Leave your work to sit for several hours before applying the second layer of glaze to allow the wax to dry thoroughly.  I would say anywhere between
4-8 hours.  You can wait until the next day by laying a light plastic covering over the work which will keep some moisture in the first layer of glaze.

Do not let the wax dry out too much on your brush.  Wash your brush with some soap and water every once in a while and make sure your wax does not dry out while you are working.  Just add a drop or two of water every now and then.

One of the best parts about teaching is the personal stories that students tell a teacher.  Studio art classes tend to be very interactive between teacher and students and many stories are shared.  One student, named Linda, created the holiday March Forth on March 4th.  With the end of winter near and daylight still short, I found this thought to be a brilliant light for these early days of March.  So, keep putting one foot in front of the other, meditate on loving kindness and MARCH FORTH.

Upcoming Show at Lakeland Community College 2013

                                                                         Last night, I delivered work to Lakeland Community College in Kirtland OH. for the "from Woman VI Show".  These organic porcelain shapes are hand built and bisque fired to ^ 05 then glazed with many layers and fired to ^10.  The current clay I am using is Jack Troy Porcelain from Standard Ceramics in Pittsburgh PA.  I make most of the glazes I use.  There may be one or two underglazes that I purchase and use from time to time.  I am grateful for the opportunity to make work for this current exhibition. 
Many thanks to the gallery director Mary Urbas and the College for the continued support given to the ARTS.  As a graduate of Lakeland Community College and previous member of the Adjunct Faculty I am very much in debt to the worldly knowledge gained at this institution.  Thank you George Somogyi, my first educator in the ARTS.  You hooked me!  I wish you were still around to enjoy the growth of your students.

Assembling Clay Shapes

I really do make other things besides hearts.  These two images show the concept stage of an organic flower shape.  I have been making many smaller clay shapes in order to assemble them  into larger shapes like this organic flower.  The flower made it through the bisque firing and is waiting to be glazed.  I am getting ready for a show at Lakeland Community College next month.  The work needs to be delivered in a few weeks.  Off to the studio to glaze for a few hours tonight while listening to the Grammy Awards.

More Hearts

More hearts for American Crafts and Jewels in Carmel!  Never in my wildest dreams would I have suspected that I would be so crazy about making hearts.  The glaze color and pattern have been so experimental.  I just reorganized my chemical area and am wondering what other glazes I can come up with.  YUM!!!  Hey Iva, the hearts are getting plump again.  I only see two hearts on a diet!
