This summer I have been working on building a body of work to serve as photo props for some friends upcoming cookbook.  I'm tickled to be included and stretching my skills to come up with a diverse but unified collection for them.  These ramekins are part of what I've made.  Working in less figurative, more abstract manner is difficult for me, but I'm pleased with these.

Also this summer I've been talking to a good friend, Brian Pera about art, work, working at home, and film.  The week N was at camp he came over for the morning while I worked in the studio.  I was nervous and reticent to participate, but I'm glad he talked me into making this short film.  I shared it last week over twitter and my personal facebook account, but neglected to post it here.  Quiet Brain: Melissa Bridgman from Evelyn Avenue on Vimeo.

I hope you enjoy it.

I love the cups and the individual designs...all of your work is so beautiful. It's simple...calming. I really enjoyed your "mini documentary"...watching an artist work is always intriguing. And is it weird that I love your smock? lol

MELISSA!!!!! i LOVE the film. wow - it was wonderful to see you working and hear you talking and almost hear you thinking. and i feel that way about my brain too - that it's a busy place most of the time. (also? the contemporary cup? the one you showed at the end? i love that too.)
