I got the chance to collaborate with Edelle Photography (Daniela) on this styled shoot. I'll let the pictures do the talking.

In full swing

Added on by carolina alamilla.

The past few weeks have been busy, from learning more about firing, to slip makin'. And it's only gonna get busier.

  -Lately I've been inspired by 60s textile design, specifically Lucienna Day. Her design is cheery but also complex. Trying to bring both of those elements into functional ware.

Real Update

Added on by carolina alamilla.

The past few months have been filled with learning, learning and more learning. It's been challenging and wonderful. I want to say it's a growing process. As with every plant there has to be pruning, which hurts but also leads to new growth. 

Here's to more growth!

What could a blog post be without any pictures?!

I was able to collaborate with a awesome friend, and he helped me create this wonderful print. The more I look at it, the more I enjoy this print. I forgot how exhausting printing is, and it's a bit trial & error until you create that lucky (close to) perfect print. 

Check out my friend's screen printing studio: Grizzly Printing Parlour

Joy

Added on by carolina alamilla.

I've survived half of the school year :: insert triple high kick!!:: These past couple months have been interesting to say the least. From one job to two jobs to three jobs (crazy, I know) but I am thankful. I've learned a whole lot and continue to do so, I don't ever want to stop learning.

Here's to choosing joy even when it's so much easier to complain. Here's to choosing joy and thankfulness when exhaustion washes over you.

Here's to joy (Jesus), for changing me

Busy

Added on by carolina alamilla.

Busy is an understatement. I've been busy learning, which is a great thing. Learning how to become a better teacher, better read people and just be a better human being as a whole.

Alas all this learning has led to some creative projects whether by myself or my students.

Studio Time

Added on by carolina alamilla.

Since moving back to Miami I've realized finding a ceramics studio is pretty tough.(Compared to the plethora of ceramic studios in North Carolina) BUT through the magic of google I found one! Very cute and cozy, a great couple decided to open one up and offer classes. Checked out their open studio and voila! I may have found my home away from home again.

The Promise of the Sun

Added on by carolina alamilla.

As a teacher I find it hard to create work of my own. I am now in constant collaboration with my students. I thoroughly enjoy it, but there is a part of me which yearns to create my own work.

I am promising myself to seek out studios, collaborations, things which will force me to create my own work.

*as for the photo, who doesn't love cool editing apps.

Till next time.

Here's to change....

Added on by carolina alamilla.

I have finally transitioned out of college and have an grown up job. I decided through the suggestion of a friend to set up a real website. This should encourage me to continue my craft whatever it may be, this season or the next. But really to encourage me to post, rant and pursue art.
