A journey to world stuff-making domination

Penland 2013, Days 7 and 8

leave a comment »

I’ve been so busy in the studio in the day, and working on design at night, I haven’t had time to post anything in a couple days… So here’s a quick rundown of the weekend. Friday night (as I mentioned) I visited the Barn, the artist’s in residence studios, and saw lots of really amazing work (some photos below).

Resident artist work clockwise from top left: Chairs in progress by Tom Shields; Rachel Meginnes’ studio; An amazing Dustin Farnsworth piece; the entrance to Dustin’s Studio.


Saturday some of my classmates and I took a little field trip. First to Bakersville, a neighboring town, to visit the Crimson Laurel Gallery which is run by the former Penland metals studio coordinator. The gallery mostly focuses on ceramics, but also carries the work of many inspiring jewelry designers.

After that we headed to Asheville where we visited a number of artist studios (info in the photo descriptions below).
