I Like These

Sometimes being an artist can be exhausting. My mind spins at a warp speed with dozens of ideas at one time. It is not fun. But when I can calm the flow of thought a little bit, I am able to create at a good pace. 

Here are some new small dishes that I made using the new techniques used from the recent workshop I attended. I am happy to have some new colors and surfaces to explore!



First, I created these forms using pinch pot techniques. Basically, hand-forming. Once I got into a rhythm, it was very relaxing.

After bisque firing the pieces, I used glazes and underglazes to decorate. The sky was the limit here. The colors stay true, but soften a bit. I am still learning more about this method and enjoying every minute of it.
