Portraits of St. Louis Artists: Heather Woodson

.
Heather Woodson

Heather Woodson works in ceramics and is one of the resident artists at Soulard Art Market, where I occasionally show. I don't know much about the techniques of this medium - uh, clay, bake, glaze, bake, shampoo, rinse, repeat. Something like that. Look at her photo gallery on her website. The outcome is quite remarkable.

Which reminds me - there is a deadline coming up for submissions to a show at Soulard Art Market on the theme of urban architecture. Uh oh! Where's a building? Where's my tripod?

I am loving your portraits of artists series! And this one of Heather working is very good. I love how you captured her in the process of making her art.

Pretty woman. I like hands in clay.

Pretty lady and perfect pose, a beautiful portrait. I can read the Italian for clay (argilla) on her shirt. Appropriate shirt, by the way...

In St. Lou you won't have much trouble finding a building. Look up!
btw Ya, a Jesuit education WAS different.And they were all 'characters' if you ask me. Did you have Jug? Did they call detention JUG? Acronym?

Another good Portrait of the Artist, Bob. But, definitely, not a young man. You need urban architecture? Just go outside, close your eyes, swing around and click. It is everywhere.

Another good portrait. You're becoming a master at this.
