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.
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.
