Tuesday!


 
Like a dog with a bone, when you got an idea in your head that won't let you alone you just got to work until it's out. It's not out yet but tonight I did these two bottle/vases and this cup for my nephew with the left over clay.
I love trying out new ideas and thoughts; all the images in my head.

Monday!

Went back to playing with the sodium silicate again. This time I mixed up a batch of slip a la John Britt and added some magnesium dioxide to achieve black.
I wanted to see what would happen if I made a deliberate design brfore I stretched it out. Here they are. One is a big bellied vase amd the other a storage jar. I have something special planned for the lid.

Been trying to get back into the swing of things since my back gave out on me. It's slow going but I will get there.

Work in Progress

Finally dusted off the paints and easel and dug out the brushes. Went to visit a friend yesterday and the driveway to her home has a canopy of cherries. Decided to take some pictures and I am using those as a reference for this painting.
Feels like I am just learning
