Haiku Speedbuild- 03Jan08

January 4, 2008

The VAA’s weekly Haiku Speedbuild made a spectacular debut last night with awesome results! The turnout was higher than we expected and we even got a band of extremely supportive (and delightfully strange) spectators to cheer our builders on 😀

From left to right, top to bottom: Photozz Alter, Cyanide Seelowe, Alizarin Goldflake, Thadicus Caligari, Spaceman Opus and Yummie Olsen cheer on the builders with cephalopodic enthusiasm.

The theme haiku for this week was:

The potter’s hands

Gently shape the vase

Out of himself.

-Frederick Gasser

Here are the results:

1st Place- Rose Farina

2nd Place- three-way tie between AJ Sporleder, Jeanni Nishi and Sunn Thunders

3rd Place- Dale Innis

If you have yet to watch or participate in a Haiku Speedbuild, believe me, you’re missing out on a good time! Join us next week, January 10th at 6PM SLT to see what all the (semi-) hype is about! Until then, you can go to the VAA contest area in Blekinge Sculpture Park to view Rose Farina’s 1st Place sculpture in person!
