First, the Lotus – as in yesterday’s Lotus Book workshop at my “Studio Cinco” (one of the participants told me that the address, #515, was very auspicious). Must be true, ’cause the workshop was really fun!
This is such a simple project, but it’s deceptive. Working with a small scale sometimes makes it difficult to pull off a striking composition. However, fiber artist Mary Ann Johnson shared some absolutely gorgeous Asian papers that made us all look good! Take a look.
One of the great things about these workshops is the sharing of information and sources. Yesterday while we were working on our Lotus Books, Leslie Newton from the San Antonio Potters Guild and I discussed our favorite new source for clay and tools, Roadrunner Ceramics.
It’s not just a store for potters – mixed media artists can find all kinds of stuff there. I was there last week and got some great stencils ($4 each) as well as some needle tools for incising wax.
Roadrunner also has these rolling pattern stamps that would be good for inking paper and texturing paper clay.
I found a teeny tiny stamp for my shard faces – they have all kinds of these little guys.
So add Roadrunner Ceramics to you list of cool art stores in San Antonio. They are located near DeZavala and 1H10 and they are super friendly and helpful.
Have a great week! Is winter over for good??
