IMG_0116

finally i am in my summer residency program a.k.a. visiting artists program at the torpedo factory on the ground floor of the torpedo factory on the waterfront of old town, alexandria for the months of july and august 2015. this is the second and final year that i will do this residency program and the location of my studio#24, is  a potter’s studio  where the mixture of work creates a simple yet contrast of our styles.

i will be hanging out and finally working for myself for the next couple of months, working on new pieces, commissions and new projects.

the contact with the public and contact with possible consumers of art is always an interesting mixed array of personalities . my aim is to further a new, more commercial line for an online market company which i have begun to work with. work that to some might consider a bit more commercial, but with the on-growing desire to be visible to a virtual community where click and buy has become a part of every day life, i am slowly moving towards this direction of sales to create a following online as well as off line. it is extremely important to keep up with the times as technologies progresses and new ways of selling work and creating a visible , more vast audience of art consumers. though hand made seems a bit  more difficult to move through the web, it is vital that we create a presence of high quality wares for new younger group of consumers. i hope that you will all drop by and see the new things that i have in the studio# 24.
