A few recent jewelry pieces. I’m working on relaunching an Etsy shop in the next few months that will have all the new stuff I’ve been working on.
Submitted these necklaces to a juried show and am waiting to hear back from the committee. If I am accepted this will be the first time ever showing jewelry in a group show. Potential cash prize in an “Amateur” jewelry category. Wish me luck!

This is a rant.

I just got home from work and all my friends are sleeping cause its fucking 3:30am.

I sometimes kind of hate posting shit that is too personal, or that very few people can relate to. I mostly hate posting personal shit because who the fuck really cares in the end anyway. You can make a comment on what I’ve said but like, do you actually CARE? I say this as a preface to my actual post, not because I WANT you to care, but because I know that you probably wont, cause I’m just gonna rant about my job which is boring and uninteresting, and if I were you, I know my automatic reaction would more than likely be “I don’t fucking care”. Sometimes you just gotta rant though, and I support rants.

ANYWAY: I’ve been seasonal supervising in a warehouse for the past 5 months. I was stoked at the opportunity at making more money, working a bunch of overtime, and the fat bonus at the end. IT HAS BEEN AWFUL. The majority of the people I was in charge of just did not care at all. I had 38 people altogether, between all the people who just quit showing up and the few I had to fire for not meeting their goals, I ended up with SIX at the end. Not only was the job constantly stressing me out, but I got so sick of talking to people and hearing my own voice that I just stopped hanging out with peo

I actually already feel a bit better having started that textual rant, and I don’t feel the need to finish. Long story short my job sucks, but I’m sure yours does too. I’m sorry our jobs suck. I wish we could all do what makes us happy all the time.

4 hours from now I’m getting breakfast with 3 good friends visiting from Oregon at the best coffee haus in the city. THEN I’m packing my car full of firewood, blankets, and food, putting on my warmest clothes and hitting up a national park to celebrate New Years Eve campin out in nature with my guy and hiking all New Years Day. I am the luckiest girl! Slept…but very lucky :D

Field Relics - Katie Herbst 2013
The inside of another new piece - Field Relics. Included is a bottled rat heart, rat feet, the remaining bones of a mouse, bird wings, a sparrow’s tongue, and various other small bones. Not pictured here but included in the piece are a pair of dried bird feet. This piece is a WIP, it needs more decoration on the outside to make it look reminiscent of a reliquary.

Ratliquary - Katie Herbst 2013
One of my newest pieces of art, and my first taxidermy project. Created for “Under My Skin: An Uncomfortable Art Show”, the pop-up show I curated last week. Based on medieval reliquaries this piece contains a taxidermy rat posed on a bed of flowers.

New Stuff

I’ve been kinda slacking on posts and updates, but this time it is for good reason. For the past month and a half I have been organizing my first legit group show since 2011. A lot has happened in the last 2 years, and I hope to have the pieces in this next show really stand out. In the past I’ve shown several photos, and even some bone jewelry, but this time plan to go all out with some full blown taxidermy. Nothing crazy this time around, just a few small pieces based around the idea of reliquaries. A lovely sparrow, and a perfect (not so) little mouse will be my subjects this time around. I’ve never actually done it, but have been reading a lot of articles, and bothering my hunter/trapper step-dad for advice. I plan on taking a lot of process shots (because despite my nearly 5 years at art school I’ve never actually documented a project start to finish), so keep an eye out for some of those soon.

BTW, the show is titled Under My Skin: An Uncomfortable Art show and all of the work will be of well…an uncomfortable subject matter. Hope to have pics of that as well!
