A large (for me) platter/pasta dish/ bird feeder finally glazed. The design is pale because it's blue....and blue can become overpowering very quickly. Hopefully the background will keep the wash effect. The poppies are in a turquoise blue with navy and delft highlights.
There's nothing like experimenting on something other than test pieces. There's only so much experimentation that I can do on test bowls and other pieces. At some point the real pieces become so precious that I freeze when it comes to putting brush to pot. The only way I have found to solve this is to plunge in and do it.
It's become cold enough in my studio to make working there very uncomfortable. I'm rethinking when/where/how I work. I'm moving a glaze area upstairs this week end. Sitting and painting gets cold! On days when I can warm my studio up to about sixty I will hand build and throw. Sixty sounds cold but with a heater going and moving around it's plenty warm for working. I just make sure to keep my feet warm!
It's supposed to be in the fifties tomorrow......this has been a most strange winter.
Enjoy the week end.....thanks for stopping by.......-s-
