A video blog entry showing my sculpture "Skibladnir" as I prepare for a show in Idaho Falls, Idaho. Images of the sculpture as it appeared at the Viking Ship Museum in Oslo earlier this year are on my website at MikeAdamsArtist.com
This video is an homage to Simon Leach, the potter, who makes wonderful instructional videos. My recent intensive work in the ceramics studio makes me realize how collaborative ceramics tends to be as opposed to painting, which tends to be non-collaborative, and sculpture, which is somewhat collaborative. I'm making great generalizations, of course, but there is a culture in ceramics that promotes the sharing of techniques and ideas, and a communal spirit. With that in mind, I'm showing a sculpture in progress, and hopefully in the future I can share more specific techniques.
