Two New Mudgirls
Two new women have joined us at MudGirls Studios and are learning alongside our veteran artisans. We function as a collaborative studio and each of us works on the various pieces in progress. The women have somewhat self-selected specific jobs within the studio. Donna, who has a big personality, likes to work big. She takes the lead on cutting and rolling the clay and clay recycling. MaryAnn is meticulous at constructing vessels and finds the repetitive movement of glazing to be calming. Linda is detail oriented and likes to perfect the pieces, taking off the rough edges and slight imperfections. Our newest team members are also getting their bearings. Susan and Taz are working on our new tiles daily.
Mudgirls Heating Up
MudGirls is one tough bunch! Until very recently, we have endured some pretty cold days in the studio. The old St. Michael’s school had been without heat, and we have been improvising with space heaters and the warmth of the sun pouring through our large windows, and of course wearing multiple layers of warm clothing. THANKS to St. Michaels and Calvi Electric we are warming up with the new industrial heater installed in our studio. Electrical upgrades in the 100 year old building were a challenge, to say the least, but now the building is revived with new warmth. Now we can really get moving!
Stay connected with us on our website, Facebook and our Instagram.
Donations are also warmly appreciated.
Thank you for your continued support,
