Sue has been doing more hand building
For a couple of years Sue has been perfecting her musical instruments.
Above is the udu, Nigerian clay drum that has a very unique sound (I hope for the next issue of Eating Art I will have some recordings of her instruments). These drums are pit-fired with ferns.
The xylephone really sounds great. Sue makes twice as many clay bars and
then samples each sound and try’s to make a complete scale.
Thistle Pots and a new leaf design.
Sue is working out a design for a new mural project for the Keene Valley School.
She’s working with the Art Teacher Cheryl Phillips and the students will be making the bulk of the tiles. Sue uses our paste paper to cut out forms for the design.
The paste paper has a texture to it so at this stage of the design it helps to remember that it will all be tile.
