Day 42: Wednesay 10 June

Today is the first day that doing this blog thingy has felt like a chore. Oh well. I have committd to doing it for a year so I just have to suck it up.

It’s cold outside, but warm inside my denims.

Hints of boredom evident

Top: Fletcher Jeans jacket, the first denim jacket I bought as an adult and still going strong

Bottom: Back into the Industrie skinny jeans. I think my thighs have gained weight since I wore them last week. They feel subtly tighter

Accessory: Mavi denim shoulder bag… little size, big style

Here’s Mavi bag closer up….

There has been no strong interest out there in exactly WHAT I have been making in the shed. Here’s a pic from my recent excursion up to the Hawkesbury to fire some clay lumps…

    Your Mavi denim shoulder bag is definately the best bag you have featured on the blog. Second is the Japanese denim bag.

    I really love the finish on those clay pieces.

    I think of this whole blog and project as an artwork, a year long performance. You going into the shed is like a work within a work, a self reflexive gesture or a way of highlighting the difference between online and studio work.

      It’s tricky the whole 2 outfits a day thing:
      1 for studio work and 1 for & work.
      And sometimes the super casual at home outfit means 3 changes a day.
      Exhausting just keepin up with myself.

    love those pots!

    • jampolk says:

      Nearly all have cracks, some major some minor.
      Scared about firing the big ones this weekend.
      Crack City!
