Step by Step

Good morning,
I am now a '.com'
Took another step in my business by moving my website to its own domain name.
Been working on it. Still much to do but... ArtbyGretaMichelle is live!

That's Better

Some better pictures. Working on my photography skills. I also took part in a group, one day exhibition on Sunday. Here I am with one of the pots.

It's the Rush!

The first time I saw a crystalline glazed pot by Matt Horne, I wanted to make a glaze like it. I was fascinated by the energy, depth and light I saw reflected in the crystals. Almost as if they were moving.

I am still a novice at mixing glazes so I bided my time until I was a little more comfortable before embarking on this adventure. I read books, looked at videos, listened to other crystelieri.

This week was C-day (you get it?) I used one of Fara Shimbo's recipes from her book "Crystalline Glazes". I made three test batches: one base, one with cobalt and manganese, the third with copper, iron oxide and manganese. After a nerve racking, nail biting firing I have this to show.

Sorry no pictures of the making. All I have are the results? I will let them speak. Clearer pictures later.
Am I going to try this again? Oh hell yes!

Be blessed
