'Under And Over' and Past Works
Plate, Up Close and Personal
Very, very happy with how this turned out, and very much looking forward to the second firing...
New Bisque Pieces
These are my very first start to finish clay works. They've just been through their first firing, and now I'm in the process of picking a colour scheme...
'Under And Over'
I wanted to give an impression of place in this piece; in this case, the 'viewer' is located on the surface of a lake. The inside of the bowl is from the perspective of lying on the water, looking up at the moon. The outside, lying on the water looking down. I finished last week, and it's just back from firing. Very happy with it, especially the 'Over' view.
These are my current works in progress; I think the process is important, so I'll be using this section to show how each work develops.
I used a special raised glaze for the text, and wanted to make it appear to be a flight trail. Writing with a very stiff glaze on an angled surface is an experience, to say the least...
The Final Piece
Once fired, the contrast is very clear, as is the haze around the moon. Very happy with this piece.
Peter Pan Inspired Lamp
This was a commission, and the first time I'd attempted to paint a sky. I absolutely love this piece, both fired and unfired.
