i have been looking at the pottery of oaxaca mexico and it has been blowing my mind and i really want to go there. so i have been helping with the day of the dead altar at redline and making clay skeleton puppets and dotting out skulls. a part of me is nicaraguan. if my name was jessica espinoza it might be easier to see. and that is a pretty name anyway. beats jessica laub. but nicaraguan women don't really change their names when they get married as a rule. so it did not make sense for me to change my name either.
also did a super-cool "fabric burial" down in bayview with another artist/friend from redline. we wrapped up an bunch of silk with berries and brussel sprouts and cranberries and buried it in chelsea's garden. we're gonna dig it up come spring and see what it looks like.
went on a mad canning spurt. something in me just loves tomatoes. and is so sad to see the farmer's markets close for the season. its my way of holding onto it i guess.
also making some animals, and magnets, and dishware, and mosaics. drawing. trying to learn to see. to pay attention.
