Porcelain is back on the wheel as I prepare for and upcoming activity. Carving has been the order of the day here.
Two bottle forms, the first one carved with a paw paw (papaya) leaf, the inspiration for the carving. the second one is waiting to be trimmed then... who knows what will happen. ;)
My great grandmother was a Carib queen. I met her only once when I was a child. Freaked me out! She was kind of scary looking.
Because of this connection I am always interested in the lives and markings of Indigenous Peoples of the Caribbean
Here is one of the pieces I am working on tonight.
12" tall bottle form, thrown on the wheel and carved, incised and slipped.
Feel free to comment.
