  1. From the album: Ceramic Boxes

    My newest box. I wanted to see how much control I could maintain over my glazes so l drew stripes of varying thicknesses on the box then glazed each a different color. I then used some of my laser transfer designs and each color of stripe got a different pattern. The ribbon I rolled a scrolled pattern into while still wet then twisted and attached it so that it could be used as a handle. With all the color on the outside I went with a simple white interior glaze.

    The box ope so you can see its opening is a triangle shape to mimic the triangular stand. It has a simple brown glaze interior.

  3. From the album: Ceramic Boxes

    This was an experiment to see if I could fire a diamond shaped box with the glaze going around all sides. I did it! The stand is separate from the box but the way I designed the triangle base makes the box fit really snuggle into it. This is also the first time I used a mason stain wash instead of underglaze for the gold background on the box. The modern flowers are an underglaze transfer. The base is a simple RIO wash.

    What's better than a gift wrapped box? Why an OPEN gift wrapped box!

  5. I have frequently mentioned my pencil boxes on the forum and have been meaning to post a picture of what exactly they are. I also added this picture as well as a picture of some of my trinket boxes and one of a couple medium boxes I had sitting around to my gallery. The pencil boxes also work as makeup brush, toothbrush, paintbrush or even silverware holders. The pencil boxes are big sellers and super fast to make, I sell them for $10-15 depending on the design. A wrap design costs more and a design with handcolored elements costs even more. I have timed myself making these and I only handle each box for about 15 minutes total for the basic model. They are small enough to fit in a priority mail cube shaped box and ship for around $8 each. I extrude the walls and slab roll the bottoms. Outsides are glazed a simple white and I limit the interior colors to either white, red, blue, or brown. They measure approximately 4 inches tall and 2 1/2 inches wide. There is nothing fancy or super creative about these little open top boxes but people love to buy them for themselves as well as for gifts. Terry oldlady - I FINALLY remembered!
  6. From the album: Work in Progress

    Don't tell anybody, but the allover slip trailing design hides quite a few little flaws. I haven't mastered slab building yet.

  7. From the album: 2014 Featured Artist Pieces

    Large pyramid box topped with Red bird for handle. Made with Little Loafers cone 6 clay. Painted with Amaco LUG underglazes. Glazed on the outside with Amaco Zinc Free Clear and insed with Coyote Rainy Day glaze. I wanted a streaky, Misty, worn background for the stark black trees and red birds. The box is actually white, yellow and gray Amaco Lugs for the back ground. I painted each color on then after painting another layer on top of it wiped it back in some areas before applying the final topmost layer which I then wiped back to allow the other layers to show through. The trees are Amaco Black and the Birds Amaco Dark Red.
