Ieva+Kamazas. Part 1

This post is about Ieva’s and Kamazas’ (also known as Marius) pre-wedding party.

Most often, if people are celebrating parties like that, they do it separately for the girls and for the boys. This was not the case.

It was planed that each of them will accomplish 9 assignments. And then everyone will meet at the train station to go to Zervynos by train. Or, to be precise, to the forest somewhere in the area of the village.

None of them knew that they gonna meet, and, of course, not that they are going to spend weekend in the forest.

Me and my camera were travelling along Ieva’s way.

First assignment that I was involved in.

Sla and I had to meet Ieva at our school. It was raining cats and dogs. I came on my bike with mascara everywhere on my face only not on the eyelashes.

Ieva came with my sister.

090911_scan_027

Sla had to film everything.

I like the way, he recorded the sound. Ieva was using microphone for that. It seemed like a stand-up reportage.

Her assignment was to read some poetry and to write letter to Kamazas.  In this picture she’s reading one poem. Very inspired face.

090911_scan_029

Thinking about another poem.

Writing letter to Kamazas.

Finished.

My sister watching the performance.

Next place was in the Cvirka park.

We have spent there a lot of time when we were teenagers. Here Ieva has to sing a song that we use to sing together. It’s rather silly song, that is the reason of her laughing.

090911_scan_036

For this assignment Bronius came to sing along.

090911_scan_060

But ended up by singing alone.

090911_scan_047

At the same place.

Next place.

Coming back. As it happens in most cases when people are coming back from spending some time in the nature, we slept. I did just this one photo and fell asleep also.

Everything but the Weddings

This month was very busy. People are getting married or going to study abroad, celebrating their birthdays. So I was very busy also participating in all those events.  So later my blog will turn to wedding blog, but now I’m posting some random pictures made between the happy events.

090819_scan_013

This picture is made in Molėtai observatory. It’s supposed to be a very modern place. I would say it’s rather funny place built in style of old- school futurism. Anyway, the reason why I made this picture is the horse in the meadow and the real Lithuanian house by the forest. Those two and the spaceship make very illustrative contrast expressing Lithuanian mentality.

090819_scan_015

That’s how the observatory actually looks.

090819_scan_019

Same day evening.

We met my sister and her family to draw on the pavement tiles.

090819_scan_034

Užutrakis. Went with Darius to chill out in our favourite place.

This photo is made in the end of august. Now is already to cold to swim.

090819_scan_035

Yes. This is camomile. I’m taking pictures of flowers sometimes. 🙂

090827_scan_016

Always, when I’m swimming I’m thinking, that it would be nice perspective for a shot. So I took my camera into the lake. I don’t like the result, but my poor camera, that risked its life deserves some respect, so I’m posting this picture.

090827_scan_017

This one is also made from the lake.

090827_scan_005

One evening we went to play table games with my sister, but ended up with plying in the children playground with Ūla.

090827_scan_072

090827_scan_034

Other day. I succeeded to get some players for the table games.

090827_scan_042

Some evening, went to eat pancakes. The light from the window was very soft.

090827_scan_043

Same place.

090827_scan_025

090827_scan_026

My main vehicle is bike. Travelling with it everywhere.

090827_scan_064

Going somewhere, I just thought that the building looks good in the sun.

090827_scan_045

Martynas left to Eindhoven for the studies.

His farewell party.

Dalytė.

She occupied the best position in the light (actually by the only one light source in that place), so became very nice object for shooting.

That’s it for now. Wedding post is coming up soon.

Kristina is on my mind

This sculpture I modelled inspired by one extraordinary girl, named Kristina.

Crazy ideas, loud voice, long hear that disapproves any rules, falling down in it’s own way, huge earrings, colorful clothse, unpredictable character – that’s smth, that characterises her pretty much.

I find her as an expresion of vitality. So I decided to model her in clay.

IMG_6574

IMG_6575

The sculpture supposed to be colorful. But it got not enough heat, that’s way it staid matte  and dark.

I decided to leave it like it is, because the accident is the most interesting and exiting thing in doing raku (at least for me, that’s also the reason, why I’m shooting on film).

IMG_6617

Raku is pretty dangerous technique, you can easily heart yourself.

IMG_6620

It’s always so exciting to wait and to look what is comming out of burning sawdust.

Here’s the final resul (foto of which again  is made by Darius – thank You very much). If you look now to the first foto, you will see, that the face in it looks totally diferent. The face is not plain, so by turning sculpture just a little bit, it changes it’s expression.

And here again is the model – KRISTINA (miss you girl, you are always on ma miiiind, you are always on ma mind!)

This is one of my favorite works.

It’s a boy, just stretching his arms while sinking in his own thoughts.

Seabed

This bowl suppose to give an impression of  a seabed.  I do not like it very much because of the blue color. It’s really not the most beautiful I ever seen. But I like the technique that I used while modeling this bowl.

Usually I just take some clay and start modeling smth, looking that it will turn out of it.  I like abstract stuff, soft forms and emotion. But this time I wanted to try to make smth not just realistic, but hiperrealistic. So I went to the sea, collected a bunch of mussels, shells and stuff alike, returned to my place and started to examine it, every small spot on a mussel.  On this bowl are actually about 5 snail’s shells, 3 mussels and 1 wooden stick, modeled separately in details.

1 more detail. This bowl is without reduction (as all my works made in raku technique, it is made following the western raku technique ).

Glazing the bowl.

Cooling down. While a ware is still hot, it is transparent.

I would like to keep almost all ware in this state, unfortunately it’s not possible.
