Evelyn, I love the piece -- and the story that goes with it is priceless.  It's a shame you don't have time lapse photography showing the unwitting performers furtively glancing around them before they scurry away with bits of broken shards stuck to the soles of their shoes!

Big Lou,

 

1) what does "hand hammered" tile mean?

2) those nice cracks in the lower center of the Starry Night piece - how did you create them?

 

 

i used a rubber mallet , then a home made clay mallet,  (from scrap lumber) i didnt have a roller to make slab,  i used second mallet to shape and square off piece and wven out thickness.  cracks are product of uneven firing and large grog which were unfortunately not planned,  PS  my first name is not big

 

Thanks for the info and the big laugh, Little Lou.

I'll try and re shoot but this piece it is quite blue. I thought it had a some subtle starry night undertones. Both sides of this piece are very atmospheric . I think it has the cooler color pallete like Manet's morning and winter haystacks. Un like This piece is wrought with faults, an contrary of some of its cool tonality It maintains a stormy quality.

Technical : Self made porcelain tile with feldspathic inclusions. Hand hammered tile, wood fired in train kiln. Carbon trapping

Ramble off.

I've never believed in killing other creatures except in self defense, but those wolf spiders are so big and fast that it's a kill-or-be-killed situation if ever there was one!!  Before I had a clay studio, I had zero kills on my record.  Now I'm pretty sure I'm Spider Enemy #1 in South Carolina!

What size are the plates (? bowls? platters?)   Glad to see you applying that talent to something besides mugs!!
