Into the Forest Submission by KatersAcres

Into the Forest Submission by Katie Oskin

My Into the Forest Submission

Into the Forest is an international collaboration of polymer artists and enthusiasts. It is inspired by the high altitude aspen groves in the Rocky Mountains. This project, Into the Forest is an evolving mixed media international installation from Laura Tabakman, Emily Squires Levine and Julie Eakes. The idea was to bring together as many polymer artisans as possible in a wide variety of ways. We were to imagine ourselves in a forest. See it in your mind: On the ground beneath a canopy of branches and leaves, unexpected life exists. We were asked to create pieces which will form its life elements. We will combine them into living colonies of varying shapes, colors and sizes. Here’s a look at what I created for Into the Forest.

The Year of Discovery at KatersAcres

… The Year of Discovery …

The Year of Discovery at KatersAcres

Have you ever sat back and wondered if you or your art is going in the right direction? Ever stopped and wondered if you are being true to your inner most self? This past fall as I spent over 30 days (on two separate occasions) hospitalized and I had a few of those inward moments. I spent a lot of time thinking about my sculpting and my art. Was my art true to myself? I had those thoughts and moments of self doubt. Was being true to my heart song? So as 2016 gave way to 2017, I knew the course was going to change, it was inevitable … 2017 was going to be a year of Discovery. My art was going to change, because I was changing. Read More

Duality by KatersAcres

‘Duality‘: The Concept & The Challenge

Duality by KatersAcres

For most of us, we are a Duality: Happy and sad. Sick and Well. Good and bad. Right and wrong. Rich and Poor.

For many of us there is one side that shows more than the other. Today we will see both of those sides, look at them, see what they show, what they mean … and even discover whether they can work together in your clay work, or not.

Mobile Office Solutions for Small Business

I used to take 4 trips from my office to the dining room table, just to tote all my stuff: planner, computer, iPad, iPhone… Inevitably I would sit down to work and realize I didn’t have my favorite fountain pen … so back to my desk I’d go. Okay, I have my pen … two minutes later, I recognized I didn’t have my notebook. So back to my desk I’d go and this would repeat itself several times throughout the morning. Does this sound familiar? Well … thanks to my friend Ginger Davis Allman of The Blue Bottle Tree, she helped me solve my problem with this mobile office solution. Read More
