Studio Day 7/29/13

Last week was probably the most hectic week of the summer, it started out on Monday in Michele's studio. There was a list of things that we had to finish in the studio before setting up the pre-college show for the rest of the week. Although it seemed nearly impossible, everything was finished in just the amount of time we had. The first thing we had to do was deliver Michele's painting to the Crane Arts building for the inLiquid members show, but before we delivered it we had to wrap it up in tracing paper, then in cardboard.

After dropping off her painting, we came back to the studio. Michele was finishing up her new pieces (as seen below) that we were going to be taking to Connecticut on Saturday. 

While Michele was working on her pieces, I was flattening down the nails Michele had hammered into her smaller pieces, so these pieces would look just as professional on the back as they do on the front. 

(It was pretty impossible not to stab yourself with these little nails while trying to figure out a pattern in which you wouldn't get stabbed.)

(Even closer!)

After I flattened the nails on the 8 smaller pieces, it was time to cut foam core and make sure it fits nice and snug in the back of the panels. This way the piece shows no sign of those pointy little nails, and also makes the piece look much cleaner as a whole. 
The process of cutting this foam core was interesting, you could not just cut one and have the other seven be the same exact size, because not all of these panels are the same size. So every time I would have to put the panel face up onto the foam core, trace the entire piece, and then measure in the size of the border on the very back. After one (or two) mess ups, I got the hang of it and was able to successfully "foam core" each small piece. (As seen below) 

Once I was finished with the foam core, it was time to wire each piece. It is embarrassing to say but these were actually the first pieces I have ever wired before... I was happy that they were smaller (lighter) so it would have been hard to mess up the wiring process.
