Â my solo show, burn to shine isÂ now available here! we sold quite a few opening night butÂ there are still many pieces available to purchase. pieces will be available online or in-store at trickster until november 30th, shipping worldwide. ^_^
Over the past 3 months, nearly every evening, I’ve been burning mini wood pieces for my solo show, Burn to Shine. I’ve created 100 pieces! It’s what I set out to do, but in the middle (and to be honest at the end) I thought I wasn’t going to make it. I committed to 100 because I thought it’d be a good goal. It’s been physically hard and yet incredibly rewarding. I’ve explored and played with negative space, pattern, background, and character. This was my first attempt at creating such a large number of original wood pieces – I tried to keep each piece distinct and interesting. I won’t say I’ll never do it again, but I might give myself more time!
I will be sharing a few collections of the pieces through this week. I hope to see you at the opening night at Trickster in Berkeley this Saturday! If you’re not in the area the pieces will be up for sale after opening night ^_^
After that, I’ll be taking a longÂ hiatus from wood burning!
we took a quick trip to vancouver a few weeks back and fell in love with that city! we took a lovely bike ride through stanley park and saw the canadian version of the golden gate ^_^
meanwhile, back in the studio, i can’t believe we’re only a few weeks away from san diego comicon! we will be in small press again this year ^_^ i’ve been spending my evenings burning mini wood burnings in preparation. we will also have an exciting new product TBA, too!
meanwhile, if you’re attending and have any specific prints you’d like please let me know (we can hold them at the table under your name) – hope to see you there! ^_^
the piece above will be part of the edward scissorhands 20th anniversary show. i am so excited! more information about the opening and show here!
