This bowl measures about 10" across and 3" tall. It's for my fella, who fancies himself a fox with corgi colors, and has a fondness for tea and coffee. ♥
Main colors are Duncan EZ and Mayco Underglaze. Blacks are Clay Art Center's baltic black A and Amaco's black velvet (watered down for shading). This is greenware, Clay Art Center's X-Tra White.

Wow that is so wonderful. Do you mind my asking how long it takes you to do something like that?

I like the fox drinking tea out of a fox mug. Classic.

Your artwork is amazing! Were you an artist before pottery or did both of those skills develop and merge at the same time?

I've been drawing since I could hold a crayon. :) My grandma was a huge influence in my artistic upbringing... she used to cut out pictures of animals in magazines for drawing references. She was so awesome...
I took my first ceramics class in 2003, but I was a strict handbuilder. The wheel and I were notttt friends. :D I didn't touch clay again until 2008, and it was pretty life-changing. My work was handbuilt at first, but the next year, I had a tantrum and the wheel and I slowly became friends. :D I tell you, I worked my rodent butt off for it, too!! I wasn't one of those "natural potters" who pick up throwing like a second nature; it was a REAL struggle for me. There was gratuitous swearing, growling, stomping, and clay-throwing involved!! But, five years and HOURS of practice later, voíla! I can make pieces that are functional and have pretty paintings on them. :) Learning the art of underglazing was pretty frustrating, too...what works, what doesn't... That's why I try'n be as helpful with underglaze topics as possible!
