So here is a little example of what I’ve been up to lately. Finally, came up with the best clay body in combination with the glaze that I like. This particular glaze causes the blues in the underglazes to run which I really like. It gives the work a more water color kind of look (which I really adore). I do like the cherry blossom effect, but I think that I may experiment with other flowers, maybe sunflowers or mums.
I, also, have been stretching clay to make serving trays which are paired up with the mishima tea sets. Stretching gives the clay so much movement…really fun to make as well.
With any luck one of the two little sets will be in the Cone Box show. At least, they are entered. Time will tell with that…keep your fingers crossed, I know I am.
The works in progress will be seen at this year’s NCECA’s conference at the Webster House in Kansas City. That will be in connection with the Midwest Clay Artist’s show there….that whole show is going to be awesome. Our members are really pulling out all the stoppers for this one. More to come on that, too.
Now, I just want to let everyone know that if there is ever anything on my site that people are interested in purchasing, please let me know. My cart is so out of date…maybe I can get it going again.
