    Sgraffito

    Some of my sgraffito work.
  2. I brush my glazes on almost exclusively since I hate wax resist and I have lots of detailed areas. I'm pretty much adding my agreement to what's been said. I use lots of fan brushes and flow the glaze on. The 1st coat is the hardest with each successive coat getting easier. You get to know what each glaze wants. Some of them want 3 coats, some 4. With some I have to wait longer between coats, or load the brush more frequently. I use the wetness of the glaze on the piece as an indicator of where I started the coat. When I've worked all the way around I can see where the wetter areas are
  3. It does take a long time, but the decoration part is my favorite.
  4. This is a very nice form! I like the matte finished and bright interior in contrast to the white exterior. It's simple and clean, but also bright and fun. Nice job!

    Sample of work I am most proud of so far.
  6. Between $28 and $60 depending on size and amount of detail.
  7. Throwing things in my mind, but my couch is so comfy I haven't gone to my studio to actually create them.

      First the ideas (couch time), then the "real thing" in the studio. Put a wooden board under the couch pillow??

      I had thrown some pots and then came down with bronchitis the next day. I crept out and wrapped them up. Now I'm feeling better but I'm scared ....

    My nautical stuff

    I grew up near the ocean and near a large lake. Now I live in Arizona and desperately miss the water. This is a theme I use in my work a lot.

      Tons of people, but a few post more than others. Michael Kline, Adam Field, and Adriana Christianson do good scopes.

  13. Hillbilly hosed off my clay clothes outside while pinned to my chain link fence today. I'm sure the neighbors were impressed.

      Not sure using the hose is "Hillbilly" enough. I think to be considered that, you have to wash them on the rocks near the Ol' Fishin' Hole...
