A bowl full of heads!
Today was my final wheel-thrown pottery class for this session. I plan to take the spring off and finish up some other projects that are in the works. I will start back to pottery class in late June. It was definitely a challenge. I tend to be a bit controlling with my artwork but THIS class was even more about control and applying a ton of patience. Patience is NOT my Virtue! But it was fun and I learned quite a bit.
The above photo shows some of the items I brought home today fresh out of the kiln.
Except for the hand (that is an old one that I thought would look cute in the picture
since it's a similar shade). The bowl holds a few of the heads I made for future projects. I plan to use them in some art dolls or possibly jewelry.
I thought it might be a good idea to even make a bunch and put them on etsy to sell.
What do you think? I really like the glaze on the pieces above. It's a weathered
These pieces also just came out of the kiln today. I love this glaze also. It's a much smoother, polished looking finish. Very nice turquoise
color. My cat, Emmy was checking them out as I was trying to photograph them.
She was sniffing inside them, just being a cat. I ended up getting more of the cat in the picture than the ceramic pieces. She's such a ham. I love her!
That's all I've got today. Maybe finish up some more artwork in my studio tomorrow.
Just realized how late it is--no wonder I'm yawning.
Good night & live your life creatively!
