#51327 Consignment, Reasonable Expectations

Posted by Natania Hume on 29 January 2014 - 09:30 PM

Actually, I thought that 60/40 was a more common consignment split. I was under the impression that since you are "stocking their shelves for free" (good point), you get a slightly higher percentage. That said, I've had arrangements with both 50/50 and 60/40 for consignment. I really much prefer wholesale, but if I really like the shop or location I feel I should be flexible....

Do not confuse Obsessive Compulsive disorder with Schizophrenia.

if I said there is no justification for him doing that, I'd be just as wrong as the late 19th Century art critics who said there was no justification for Cezanne painting the way he did.


Many impressionists painted the way they did for many reasons: unusual imagination, defects in the vision, recreational use of ... whatever they were taking. Many had some mental problems. Their art justified their flaws. Their art will be here forever.

Brigg's art will be here forever too! Simply because it is well done mechanically, it is outstanding, unforgettable.
Whatever caused his imagination to go that sick, I cannot and shouldn't guess. However, what he created does not justify the cause.

Although ... I looked at it again, and you know, I see hate in his art. Yes, hate! So, if he, been a nice man (as Marcia said about him), wants to tell people in a nice manner how disgusting the mankind is, than I can see the justification of ... whatever his problem is.

Brigg even admitted this by himself; he said what influences his art is "an ugly wrinkle, fat neck, a pimple". Not a beauty of the human's body, not a deepness of the human soul, but the ugly inside of it.

Maybe he sees the beautiful in the ugly?

#32217 super dark clay body and glazes

Posted by Natania Hume on 04 April 2013 - 01:23 PM

Here are some pieces I made with standard 266. I use a glaze called "Cream breaking red" and fire to cone 5. I will post the glaze recipe when I find it (I left my glaze notebook at school where I teach)....I apply the glaze quite thinly to get more of the clay color showing through...I would love to find a creamy white that shows up on this clay, but I can't imagine there is one that would work...

#28518 Help with Resume/CV/Portfolio

Posted by Natania Hume on 25 January 2013 - 07:30 PM

I am not so confident in my artist's statement skills myself, but have learned a lot from looking at the websites of artists and potters whose work I admire online. There are statements on most websites, and you can read though them taking notes about what topics they address, how the statements are structured, etc. of course the content of yours would be different, but researching for inspiration is a good place to start. Often CVs are on websites too. Good luck!
