Yeah!!!!! I was just chosen to be included in the storque blog on etsy called "New kids on the Block" that is featuring artists who have been on etsy for six months or less.My peach "Lotus Vase " was included.
"October gave a party;
The leaves by hundreds came-
The Chestnuts,Oaks and Maples,
And leaves of every name.
The Sunshine spread a carpet,
And everything was grand,
Miss Weather led the dancing,
Professor Wind the band. -George Cooper, "October' Party"
The end of a long day. I had been glazing pots all day. It was evening..I was tired...I was hungry...I was rushing to finish. That is when you make mistakes. I did not screw the glass container on tight enough to the spray gun. It fell off, crashed on the floor...glaze flew all over , even up into my hair. My darling husband ran and got the camera and said "Lets photograph what this studio life is really like !" It was just one of those days. The glaze room is my least favorite room. Other days in the sunlite, bright part of the studio will make up for it.
This is my same "Twinning Leaf series" in color. They are a real departure for me as I tend to prefer softer,quieter colors. I like them alot ..it must be the influence I see out my studio window right now.
Hi everyone...anyone I decided it is time to apologize for my messy and confusing blog. It is entirely due to my lack of techiness. I really am much better in the studio then in front of a computer. BUT, I plan to have my very techy niece over to help me overhaul this blog. Thanks for being patient Nancy
Although, this piece is extremely time consuming, the process becomes very meditative for me. The eight hundred to one thousand (no kidding, I counted) petals are individually shaped and attached to a wheel thrown base. The exterior is lightly glazed with a satin matte glaze for durability. The interior is glazed to be watertight.
