Entering the Final Phase

Posted by on Aug 22, 2013 in Blog | 0 comments

At my last Blog I was certain that my new studio would be complete by my next post… so I waited… but alas, life sometimes unfolds in ways you don’t expect. In the midst of all the studio action, we got a couple new additions to our community: Florence and Emma, Oberhasli and Nubian goats respectively! So my life has been full of sweet goat nuzzles, building and mucking a cute enclosure for them, milking and researching and more milking and more researching, and wild chemistry experiments in Kefir and Yogurt making. It’s been super rewarding and brought a lot of joy, an unexpectedly GREAT amount of joy actually, to my life.

Now that the Husbandry program is starting to run itself a bit, attention is returning to the studio. This and next week I have a dedicated team of volunteers working in the space to put in lights and electric, build storage, finish the little details, and continue to prep for the concrete pad we’re going to pour outside. So it’s all moving along… a more circuitous route than I had hoped for initially, but its getting there. And just in time too! With new projects on the horizons, including an upcoming collaborative piece I’m working on with Andy Hunter to exhibit at the San Diego Space for Art in October, I’ll need a space to create. I am so grateful right now for how everything is moving and the lessons in being patient with the process.

Emma (aka Emmasheen)- as in Florence + Emmasheen.  I am a HUGE Florence + the Machine fan, but I can't take credit for the naming brilliance.  I just liked Emma for Emerald.
