final touches ...and titling/pricing items for show
I mixed up a two-part epoxy to secure the blue wooden balls to the top of the tomato cage. Then it was on to what I find to be two of the more challenging tasks of getting pieces ready for an upcoming show -- the titles and prices.
Names are not hard for me, titles are. I feel like people can always change a creature's name to suit them -- in fact, I pretty much expect them to -- names are important. Titles, on the other hand, are different. And that is why I oftentimes worry that when I add a title to a piece it could totally throw off a person's perception (or at least alter) what they first felt about it. I also understand that sometimes a title can give a person an "oooooooooh...now I get it" moment...for better or worse. And of course the ideal situation is that someone sees your work, doesn't give a fig about the title, and just likes it no matter what. And then there is pricing your work. Gah.
And now for something completely different -- look what I "found" in my cabinet. Four heads I made in a ceramics session a long time ago...what can they become now I wonder?
