I had a small kiln firing last night (8 cups – 1 plate)
Here are the results! Use the arrows or swipe to see them all
It’s really hard to get an idea of what a 3d cup looks like from a photo. A video with a 360 view is a little bit better. Seeing them in person-and being able to pick them up and drink from them is still best.
For your reference, I sell cups for $45 and plates for $75. They are only available in person NO ONLINE SALES. You need to pick them up to ‘know’ if it’s the right pot for you. You can find them either on my front porch, or at my studio at the Pendleton Art Center on Final Fridays and by appointment.
The new year isn’t starting out the way I had hoped.
Spent the day making screen print underglaze transfers based on two of my block prints, only for them to be a disappointment. Oh well, will try again another time.
Hope your year is going better than mine!
Sorry for being a crybaby earlier when my project did not work on the first try. In my experience, neither pottery OR printmaking work perfectly on the first try. Not sure why I thought combining the two would be easy.
After a little more practice, The transfers are a little bit better. Will make more pots and try again later. Thanks again everyone for the encouragement!
Thank you everyone for the invites to your NYE parties, unfortunately, I’ve already made plans. I’m so excited about this NYE, i made a colored pencil drawing in anticipation of all the festivity to come! lol! Happy New Years everyone!
I’m still learning colored pencil, and experimented by making some wild (to me) color choices. I did not think it was going to work, but I stuck to it, and it all came together. I did not expect this, but I’m learning A LOT about color while learning to use pencils. I could see this changing the way I paint.
Here in kentucky, we are celebrating our first day above freezing since the sub zero winter blast!
Also, I am learning to use colored pencil. After a couple of fails, I was FINALLY able to get the drawing to look the way I wanted it to look! not sure why that had to be so hard?
Hope you all have a great day!
