Wallowing in mud

A few weeks ago, a friend gave me a book about transferring images into clay. As a printmaker, and ex potter, i was interested. Shortly after, they sent me ANOTHER book about printing on clay. Aat that point, i decided it was time to dust off my pottery equipment and make some things to try printing on.

The new mud room

I thought it would be fun to hand build some of the characters from my prints and paintings.

Some of my clay critters

I have not thrown any pots, other than for the occasional empty bowls fundraiser, since 2007. And was curious if i remembered how to throw a pot on the wheel.

Future mugs

I did remember!!! Its like riding a bike!!!

Mugs with the bottoms up!
One thing leads to another…more pots!

Stay tuned! I hope to print and transfer some of my woodcuts onto these pots. Should be interesting!
