At the studio she started to experiment with clay, and after an evening of tending the fire pit at our homestead in the meadow, she decided to make new fire pit decor with her small ceramic sculptures and gathered stones.
On Sunday she graced us with what she called her best artist talk ever, and the crowd was smitten with her psychedelic and sensory installation work, influenced by her dreams and meditations.
Sarah is hosting an interactive event on her mobile stage this week. Home Share is an open forum for visitors to share their stories and anecdotes about home. Inspired by The Poetics of Space and her own self-contained traveling home, she aims to start conversations about how we perceive domestic space and form ideas of home.
Rose Beerhorst diligently stitched on her quilt all week, and punctuated the monotony by making one of her signature rag rugs. She uses old clothing and bedding, cut into strips and wound into balls, to crochet her durable designs. We will be arranging a workshop where she teaches the technique. We are also shooting a time-lapse video of her process in the meadow next week.
He wowed the crowd along with Sarah at our Sunday slide talk, giving us a peek at his obsessive collections, and explaining his oversized quilts, tedious yet hilarious Halloween costumes, and collaborative sewing relationship with his mother.
He plans to make one or more drawing and painting zines during his stay, and has been busy reading books from our studio library and drawing in his sketchbook.
All and all, it was a very stimulating and exhausting week!
