Pottery is the craft, but the Glazing is my Art.
Spring Time Events
Spent last weekend at the town of Cary's Annual Lazy Daze Festival with the other members of the Cary Arts & Craft Group. It was a 2 day event. We had a total of 7 pottery vendors set up in front of the Cooper Building. A good time was had by all of us.
Update - Glazed work 7-7-2017
Greenware (Lost 1 Yarn Bowl before I could get it bisqued, It broke. And I lost 1 Cherry Bowl during the 1st firing because the clay was still damp. But I was able to savage the Chip & Dip Bowl with Lid above.)
Greenware - Speckled Brown Clay. Had to take the 4 Large Pots to the Cary Art Center to be fired, too large for my small kiln.
7/1/2017 Update: Finished Art
Greenware Work this Week
The 1st 3 pieces were so beautiful in their chocolate brown greenware state, I hope I didn't overwork them by adding sgraffitto and underglaze color to them. It's all about the glaze.
The other 4 pieces were made from leftover clay, had to use it before it dried up on me. Actually they were 4 separate pieces, but the little one fits as a lid to the next smallest. And it also fits as a lid to the middle piece. The piece on the left is red clay with avocado green and blue underglaze. Should be exciting to see what happens, since it is the 1st time I have used underglaze to give my pottery color.
