Everyone in the studio has their heads down as we enter the final week of the month long summer residency here at Medalta. It seems like all the kilns are firing simultaneously with people wanting to make use of any leftover clay in their studios and claim space in last minute bisque firings.
Robin is not quite as frantic as he has recently decided to stick around these parts for another three weeks. Aaron extended the invitation for him to stay on as part of the next residency group which will revolve around the theme of technology. Each year MIAIR invites a number of artists to explore a specific theme for the month of July, and this year the residency is bringing 8 artists whose practice revolves around technology in terms of both aesthetics and applied technologies that are both historical and contemporary. Robin is stoked to work with the group that is coming for this residency, and even happier about not losing any momentum in the studio just yet.
As for the rest of us, we've been soaking up the sunshine since it arrived early in the week. Our days have been filled with trips to the spray park and ice cream store. We're loving this shift in weather.
