musing while using cobalt washes on porcelain pieces about how to
maybe work with a flat surface, canvas or wood…with brushes and real paint…
so canvases of about a meter square have proved a liberating change of pace (while waiting for clay to dry )
continuing with porcelain thrown forms and cobalt oxide brushwork…. this week pushing to try these ideas on a canvas with acrylic paints…. loving the physical energy of making marks.
studio still life today
love a pile of cups, blue and white, porcelain, spots and clouds…..some lovely versions of
happy birthday sung a few days ago by biggies and littlies have given
my batteries a charge ….
the kiln is on and i’m ready to go!!!
platters and plates, stoneware gives such lovely surfaces to present food, the texture and colour of the clay gives an earthy ‘stoneyness’ that adds and reflects all the deliciousness of shared food platters from cheese to fruit to seafood or meats….mmmm what time is it?
porcelain bowls and cobalt markings, glazed inside, some outside,wax resist.
enjoying so much the interaction between clay body and glaze …the earthiness/stoniness of the surface….oxidised mattwhite glaze over Keanes stoneware 33.
stoneware cups out of last weeks firing…am enjoying the ‘stone-ness’ of the body and the way the white matt glaze works over it, satisfies a need for ‘earthiness’ visually apparent. my porcelain is fired to the same temperature, a different delishess ness !!
