Susie Fowler: Blog

I could look it up, but I think this is the 9th year for the Art and Wine Trail.  It's the time I see old friends and collectors from Austin, driving out for a lovely fall day in the hill country to do their early Art Gift buying and sample the new wines of the season at Spicewood and Stone House Vineyards. 
I'm showing the Edwards Plateau Flora, Fauna and Fossils Series which was on view this summer at the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center.  And I've done the first kiln load of holiday gifts and will have another round coming in mid December.  There are over 100 pieces in the gallery this season.  Come enjoy the Fall Harvest of pieces.  Bring a couple of  friends and introduce them to my work and porch here on the cliff.  Hope to see you on the Trail.

I've been invited to join this year's SculptFest at the Umlauf Sculpture Garden and do a little demonstarting of my handbuilding method.  Hope you take some time on Sunday to check out the work of 24 sculptors in all mediums on the grounds of the lovely Umlauf Gardens.
The Umlauf is on Robert E. Lee, just south of Barton Springs Rd, east of Zilker Park.  Come See!

If you want to come for FREE to the Wildflower Center, and watch me make a few small bowls to demonstrate my handbuilding methods, then please join me for the Lady Bird Tribute Day on Sunday, July 25.  The wildflower center is open from noon till 5 and I'll be there doing the demo and chatting from 1 - 4.
The show is in the McDermott Building, at the back of the gardens, and that Sunday will be packed with people (since it's free that day)  so you might want to catch the show before then to absorb the delicacy and intricacy of these pieces.  The flora, fauna and fossils in these pieces are all from the Edwards Plateau and honor the cycles of life and death here on the Pedernales cliffline and river bed.

Photos on the Blog

Posted on April 30, 2010
I just realized I cannot send photos in my emails, so will be updating the visuals via the blog function on the new website.  Mostly I'm working on commissions these days and the LadyBird show.  These photos are from that project, slabs later creating a large urn for the LadyBird Wildflower Center Show. more to come , via the blog:

So many people came out to enjoy this splendid spring and take photos of the glorious flowers.  We saw 5 great herons fly over the river, all together.  I see individuals herons frequently, but don't remember seeing so many flying together.
Next weekend is the Art and Wine Trail so I have a kiln to unload and pieces to label and price.  And on Saturday from 2 - 5 I'll have the Austin Community Steel Band here to play during the Art Trail.  It's Free and I encourage you to bring your children to listen to the music.
