Anderson and Jessie are trying to make a little breathing room in the studio, and perhaps make a little money back from the blood, sweat, and tears they lost via the creative/experimental process. Much of the work is not defective in any way, it might be a glaze they tried out, or a different clay or shape they no longer wish to explore. We’ll call them “trials and tribulations.” They will be selling seconds of their new collaborative effort, Bean and Bailey Ceramics, along with other odds and ends.
Wait!?! Did you want to get mom something real, real nice? Well don’t fret! Regular priced prized pieces will also be available.
Artifact is happy to announce that we will be a part of the Spark festival this year.
Shop Class will be a day of demonstrations by each member of Artifact studio. We will open our doors to the public for an afternoon of live blacksmithing, woodworking, slip casting, and wheel-thrown pottery demos. Come see artists in their natural habitats! Witness the blood, sweat, and tears that go into the process of making something by hand! Discover how objects are made outside of the factory! As you behold the manipulation of these materials in front of your very eyes, gain appreciation for the skills required, and insight into the studio practices of working craft artists. Our goals are to both educate and entertain the public, showing people processes involved with objects they most likely see and use every day- pots, furniture, tools, art, and much more. Actions observed may or may not include but are not limited to: Smashing, throwing, turning, carving, welding, pouring, sweating, crying, smelling, cutting, grinding, burning, heating, trimming, mixing, drying, and smoothing. Eat some snacks, ask some questions, and leave with a better understanding of how things are made.
These words come from the mouth/hands/interwebs of Jon-Michael:
You are cordially invited to attend a screening of Madison Harris at Artifact headquarters. Madison Harris is a stupid ‘lil’ film about many things and about nothing. (like 11 min. long sorta little) It’s taken a little while to finish this piggie so we’d really love you to come. The screening will start at 8pm beginning with a 20 minute pre-reel full of all kinds of good stuff and personally constructed by the capable hands of MES founder, Chris Dortch. There will be cookies, potteries, iron-ore, mr. parker, amazing clothes, designs and so much more… You will win money tonight!
And don’t leave after the lights get bright. Give yourself a chance to soak up all that is Artifact. Team Artifact will have all their amazingness on hand for the takin’ and admiring’. Zac-Zac-Zacharais will be spinning records for your pleasure. I don’t know how it will get any better than this, but maybe, you never know.
Here is the trailer:
We are very excited to be showing Jon-Michael’s film this Friday!
Monday will be a first for Artifact, as we will be hosing a night of experimental music. Come to the gallery at Artifact where we will be joined by Onley Tonight, Rum runners, and Joey Molinaro.
