Artist to Artist: Shoshona Snow

A couple of months ago I was part of an artist to artist swap that was organized by Emily Watson on Flickr. Basically we were all assigned someone at random and we had to send them something that would inspire them to make something either with that object or inspired by that object. I was assigned to work with Shoshona Snow (a very talented ceramicist.) Well I was totally scared about what to send so I send a bunch of random stuff. Sorry Shoshona!! The box above is all the stuff I sent her to work with (and all the photos in this post are hers.) Well she took molds of a few of the things I sent her...
And then she came up with this beautiful stuff!!!
When I got it in the mail I couldn't even believe how gorgeous it was! SOOOO beautiful!!

Go check out her etsy shop and her blog, and buy her stuff because you will love it!

Oh those pieces are gorgeous! I wish I had joined in on that Artist to Artist deal...hopefully there will be another one :)

That is totally, insanely cool. I am a HUGE fan of Shoshona, and this work is no exception. Thanks for sharing. So, did you make something based on what she sent you?

Yeah...I was so shocked at what she made...AMAZING!
I actually got things for the swap from someone else, not shoshona. They sent them to me pretty late and when I got them I was leaving for Tennessee so I am late getting completed. I still need to finish...

I couldn't believe them when I saw them on Flickr and to see them "framed" on your blog reinforces just how stunning they are! Wish she'd reproduce a cup or something small for Etsy. (can't afford the tray although I'm drooling for it).

And I totally hope there's another swap soonish. I joined after this one was well underway.
