My best wishes to you for 2017; happy drawings, paintings, collages, pottery and what not!
I’ve started working TODAY on a brand new project, besides my current obsession (pottery): a drawing a day for the next 365 days in parallel to Priya from the Plum Tree. I’ll share the details in a next post. Until then, here are some pieces, in production or finished, that I’ve been working on during the past weeks.
Fur on wood and white glaze on clay
This small coffee cup is slightly crooked, but I love its texture and roundness. It feels a bit sandy under the fingers and it fits perfectly in my hands. Note the furry ballerina paws in the background. They are a perfect backdrop to any pictures.
A first attempt with marbled clay (#542 and #519), slowly drying
Marbled clay, polished with a metal spoon
Completed pieces from this Fall/Winter
Mushroom: black underglaze and clear glaze on clay #519, black slip and clear glaze on speckled clay, grapevine glaze on clay #519
The only drawing that came out as I hoped was this mushroom painted on a small disk. The combination was perfect: right amount of underglaze and transparent glaze on top. I applied a thin layer of the latter with a sponge and it seems that this is what works best. It didn’t make the drawing fuzzy like the other ones.
My January gift: a wallpaper of a very snowy forest in Sutton, where we used to live. You can download it by right-clicking on the picture. Choose “Save image as”.
