|My newest work combines drawing, painting, and resist layering.|
Not so new, but pots with some alterations:
|The clay as part of the design|
|Combining new colors|
In order to continue to stay excited about clay and the pots I make, I need to make time to consider new ways of working. This can be hard at times as, to be honest, making a living with pots quickly can become like an assembly line. While production can be enjoyable, satisfying, and even create ingenuity, I find joy and feel energized when I make opportunities for creativity and play.
The cup below came from the desire to create a resting space from decoration on on my pieces. Here is what I came up with. And yes, I know, there actually is no resting space.
|Finger painting, drawing and resist.|
|Wanted the grid area to look like a patch.|
