I'm experimenting with different palettes on a new collection of plates and platter that feature fish!
These pieces are part of a collection of textured grooved bowls I call memory bowls - because one of my customers told me the bowl she bought reminded her of a dress she had 30 years ago! The bits of lace and seashells are evocative of something different for everyone, I guess!
These tiny little bowls started off as pinch pots, then got stretched onto molds I made from acorn squashes. After firing they were textured and glazed.
I traveled to India recently and came home with some wood block stamps...I'm experimenting with different palettes and designs. Lots of fun.
These are high fired without glaze, and then cold glazed with acrylic paints and finished with a sealing coat of varathane. They are purely decorative. Using acrylic paint gives me the opportunity to layer on the color, and see the results immediately.
