Boy, I have had two really awesome and productive days in the studio. I love being in there, and having made a promise to be in a show in November helps keep me Motivated.
Here’s what I made in the last few days. They are all unfired greenware:
Paul asked me to make him a wall-hung planter for Cuban Oregano. I like the imagery, but I don’t actually like the size – it’s a little too clunky for my taste. But Paul does, and that’s what matters.
So then I took the same face mold and bent it around a tall’ish but skinny single vase – I like this!
I have a plastic place mat that I bought in a Dollar Store in New York, with the typical sky line and Statue of Liberty on it. It’s a REALLY fine imprint, but I’ve tried it on these next two vases. I won’t know if it worked until they’re fired and I add the color – fingers crossed!
This next one is meant to be wall hung with a wire holder; not crazy about it, but these are my first tries, and I’ll be modifying the shapes/sizes etc.
And lastly, another of the 3-tied-together vases; I’m really loving this look.
Once all this stuff has dried for a week or so, I actually have enough to do a firing – YAY!!!
