Ceramics Workshop with Magdalene Odundo OBE – Part II

Previous Post: Part I  – with Magdalene Odundo: I am a ceramicist!

More than just a bit of pottery was done during the amazing workshop with Magdalene Odundo. Visits to Iolani Palace, Mission Houses Museum, Pali Lookout, and Bishop Museum happened, also. Plus here’s a look at work others in the workshop created. Clearly they have more experience than I :)

http://studiodeanna.com Welcome! I’m Deanna, a metals & fiber artist creating sculptures and wall art installations. My work is very tactile, 2D & 3D textiles and often takes organic forms inspired by our natural planet. My international experiences have provided the opportunity to swim in the gorgeous tropical waters around Hawai’i, hiking in the rainforests of Far North Queensland, and the breathtaking beauty in Africa. Utilizing my custom-made steel tools, my favorite pieces to create are large-gauge wire crochet sculptures. My meticulously handcrafted designs will enrich your office, home, and outdoor living spaces. Currently I am dividing my time between the Tokyo Bay Area and Hawai’i and am open for commission art works.
