BOTONS

Acabo de subir a la tienda algo hecho con un material totalmente distinto a la tela,
gracias a mi amiga Mónica he descubierto la cerámica!
Yo me estoy haciendo un par de jarrones, pero como no podía ser de otra manera, lo primero que hice fué algo relacionado con la costura:

These are my first works with pottery, I went to a couple of workshops offered by my beloved friend Mónica, and I really liked the material. I has nothing to do with the process of working with textiles, your brain has a very different way to approach the piece you want to make. Ceramic is somehow more “direct”, you don`t have to overthink too much, if you want f.e a circle you just cut it, you can attach it to the piece you´re making and if you don`t like the effect, take it off and turn the circle into another shape.
Another thing is that you work on the right side of the piece, with textiles you work most of the time inside out, and is only after you have finished sewing each part of it when you can see the result of what you are making, and the you continue shaping it!

But….. of course pottery has it`s own tricks and difficulties, one is that the measure changes quite a lot once it is baked, it gets a lot smaller. And what I find more intrincate is that the color of the pigments has nothing to do when you apply them from the colour that comes out from the oven! Wow, you have to reteach your eye and your brain to know what you`re doing. I`m afraid I`ll have to make a lot of wrong colour combinations to get that :)

Zeramikan hasi berria naiz, hortaz normala den moduan, gauza arraroak ateratzen zaizkit. Ni dena den arro arro nago nere lehenengo potearekin, nahiz eta ez nuen espero horrelako kolore arroxa gelatinoso bat! Saloian ondo geratzen da, eta bai ni, bai Kalanchoea, oso pozik gaude.
Banabil beste lorontzi bat egiten, ea zertan bukatzen duen…
Mila esker Moni!!!!!!!

The Secretary

secretary

I made this Lady as a custom order for a secretary that was about to begin her retirement. The company wanted to thank her the 23 years of work, so they decided to talk with me to make a representation of who she was.
So glad about it, of course! Though it has not been an easy lady to came out, you can see a simple white shirt, but it took me so long to reach there. Many diferent fabrics and shapes until I got to this.
One of the clues I was working with was to make a secretary inspired on the 50s, I think that finally she`s a mix of periods… (it happens to me very often). The glasses are the responsible of the mid-century look, Txo!? designed and made them with a 3D printer. Technique that I think it` s going to be very usefull and propper for the Ladies from now on ;)

Me encargaron esta Lady para una secretaria que iba a jubilarse, la empresa quería agradecerle los 23 años de trabajo. Las claves fueron: una secretaria inspirada en los años 50; y uno de los retos: las gafas.
Como las nuevas tecnologías no están reñidas con las técnicas más tradicionales de producción (la clave está, como en todo, en encontrar un equilibrio), me pareció que la impresión 3D podía ser lo mejor en este caso. Dicho y hecho, tengo la suerte de contar con cómplices  estupendos y Txo!? le hizo unas gafas cincuenteras. Geniales por cierto ;)

Me consta que The Secretary y la secretaria ya se han conocido, y reconocido. Así que yo estoy infinitamente contenta.
