So for an #introduction I'm Heather aka Hacklock an Australian visual artist. I'm #queer, & a professional #catsitter who suffers from severe #depression, #anxiety and a very painful reproductive disorder, that makes life complicated!
Update on this. Have had clay and slip on back order for like two months and finally got it. There’s a monopoly in the area on pottery supplies and the ppl that run it are awful. I hate being forced to shop somewhere so unwelcoming and hostile to learners. So I’m ordering from a small biz a couple of hours away but she has trouble getting stock because my local store tries to get manufacturers to block her. It’s fucked. ANYWAY I can start making at home properly for now
I’ve done a lot of purchasing for my home ceramics studio this week and it’s gooooood.
- a grinding stone to smooth sharp bits & bases on fired pieces
- a giant bag of foam offcuts for transporting delicate unfired pieces
- safety gear for mixing raw chemicals (dust mask, filters, safety glasses, nitrile gloves)
- dowel of different thickness for rolling out slabs
- foam wedges for drying plates without them drooping
- big jerry can and hose for storing prepared slip
Umm what else
Ahh shit! I keep forgetting about you mastodon.
I find that drawing/ art making when I’m really suffering in my bad brain is most helpful if I focus on something completely unrelated to what’s going on in my life or in my head. So here’s a very brekky oriented bear!
