I have been really thinking about how my artwork will come into play on my trip. I have contacted an arts and crafts organization and a local artist who is quite renouned in the region ( and deserves a world stage, his work is really great and I will create a post on him soon) who I hope to meet in person. I want to be able to meet working artists, and I hope I can create some work of my own while I am there. That is what is not defined. Where will I be able to purchase clay, will I be able to fire anything, should I consider other mediums?
My initial mission for this trip was to discover new natural forms (from the rain forest and the sea) to inspire new work in the future. Now, I want to work there, and I want a chance to work alongside the artists there, have conversations with them about their work, what inspires them? Can a girl from the middle of the prairie find new inspiration on an island? I am betting that I can.
