I just recently finished my studio residency at the Neville Public Museum in Green Bay. I had such a great time working in Studio 210 and meeting the staff of the museum! But all good things come to an end, or so I am told. The saddest part of moving out of a studio is finding a new one. Luckily my soon to be husband is very kind and supportive of what I do and doesn't mind me setting up shop in our little dining space in our little apartment! So here it is, my new studio... where the magic happens!
Along with a new studio space comes some new work. I am starting a new series called "Cakettes." They are made from floor scrubber sponges that one of the employees at the Neville gave me! He stocked me up before I had to move out, and for this I am grateful. Below is a picture of one of the first little cakettes I made that was featured in "Eats and Treats" in Nacogdoches, Texas. I am still playing around with how to display them. The one below is on a little cake stand and the one pictured above is on a paper doily. What do you think?
I love finding desserts in new materials and these floor scrubber buffer sponge things are just perfect. More photos of "cakettes" to come!
