Since Covid-19 I have made a make-shift studio space/storage space at home where all my art supplies have been dumped and I have a small desk which I can glaze at, it’s not a very inspiring space but its better than nothing. With the weather being so nice I have been lucky enough to take projects outside where I can spread out and not be too worried about making a mess!
My ceramics practice has pretty much come to a stand still with having none of the equipment/facilities! its made me realise how lucky I am to have such easy access to them at Loughborough! I think I might order some clay so I can make some artworks ready to be fired when I get back to University, that way I am saving some of the making time that has been lost! I did make around 10 pots which need glazing so that is another 4 days work I can do at home!
I have found there has been lots of funding, opportunities, and marketing platforms made available to help keep artist communities going. I have found this really motivating and tried to involve myself in as much as I can. I have also started thinking about new approaches to my practice in terms of focusing on my 2D works and developing my collages!
