Why majolica?

I think it started with my Nanu's teapot.  She had many, but this one was majolica, made in Italy around the turn of the 19th-20th century.  I would look at it and wonder how they did it.  Fast forward approximately forty years later to a majolica workshop given by a grad student at R.I.C.  I went home, pulled Nanu's teapot out of storage and aha, "I can do that!"

I am a fauve at heart.  I love the colors I can achieve with Majolica, the feel of my brush on raw glaze, and the risk of having one chance to get it right.

This blog will be a work in progress.  I decided to start posting because I am fully capable of losing myself in dithering.
