Moving mostly done

This week my parents moved most of the rest of their belongings into dad’s downtown building where my wife and I have been living for more than two months now. I’m hoping this will mark the end of the mad rush of purging, remodeling and schlepping stuff for a good while so I can get back to regularly scheduled studio programming.

How many times have I said this now in the last month?

The problem is that I’m still also looking for other part-time work. I’ve been busy enough helping out the family that I haven’t had time to do much else — and the type of work involved in this has been as pleasant as most any — although I did manage to fill out a couple applications and make a few phone calls. Just as soon as I get back into my studio routine and mentality, I’ll probably be working more hours at some yet unspecified day job.

And I still need to rewire, or at least get a new cord for the kiln, and find somewhere to buy clay. At the moment I like Dakota Potters out of Sioux City.

In the midst of all of this I did get one of my works into a juried show, the first since I began trying to show my sculpture again over the course of the past two years or so. Of course, this only whets my artistic appetite.

Paul Nielsen founded The Aesthetic Elevator late in 2005. He owns a piece of paper, located somewhere in his house (not on the wall), stating that he earned a B.F.A. from the University of Nebraska around about 2001. While there, he studied studied architecture, graphic design and ceramics, graduating with a degree in studio art. Paul presently serves as communications manager for a small non-profit doing their print design and marketing. He spends as much time sculpting in his studio as possible — which is not nearly enough.
