A New Series

Apologies for having been somewhat quiet.  I have been working on an idea for a new series of posts.  Lillstreet's Clay Department is the largest department at Lillstreet and the amount of chores and tasks that needed to be performed on a daily basis is not a trifling matter.  There is a whole cadre of behind the scene actors each performing their assigned duties to help the Clay Department function as a well oiled machine.  This cadre of actors are the Lillstreet Studio Monitors.  So, I've been busy "interviewing" and collating the response from the monitors and will present them for your reading pleasure over the course of the next few weeks.  The questions that I've asked them are as follows:

1.       What is your name (I may not always be able to tell by your email)?

2.       When did you start coming to Lillstreet?

3.       What brought/brings you to Lillstreet?

4.       What is the nature of your clay work -- functional or sculptural?

5.       What is your process?  Do you sketch, prototype and conceptualize? etc.

6.       What or who influence your work?

7.       Do you work with other medium besides clay?

8.       What are your duties as a monitor?

9.       If there’s one thing you absolutely have to inform the Lillstreet clay community that would make your work easier, what would it be?

The "interview" is an email response to the above question and it is my goal that the responses you read will be true to the voice of the individual monitor.  I will limit any editing on my part so you get a true sense of the personality of the responder.  The hope of this series is so you have a greater appreciation for the monitors and the things they do at Lillstreet.  And, if you are so inclined, thank them for their hard work.  I am sure they would love to know that they are appreciated.

I hope you enjoy the postings over the next few weeks!
