Before I get into the new items, I want to start with that triangle platter which has been on display at Shadbolt Centre for the Arts for the past few months, and finally came home with me on Monday.
This one was made using one the styrofoam moulds I made in a weekend course in Sept 2016. I have been very pleased with how these worked out, and hope to make more platters from them in future.
my handmade stamps from a few years back, which have textured a lot of pieces for me. The texture is highlighted with Deep Blue and Amber Celadon glazes, which were subsequently wiped off, and the whole piece was sprayed Clear. Which is interesting, since it seems to have a bluish tinge, I would have guessed it was sprayed Celadon. Since it was created from a slab, it has a nice uniform weight to it, and will make a lovely serving platter.
Now for the new pieces. All of them bearing one of my signature stamps.
First of all, I have a set of pieces crackled with sodium silicate, and decorated with plum blossom stampers. I tried to finish them in a variety of ways, so I could discover which ones I liked the best. These are the first 5 which came home with me on Monday :
I think I'll leave it there for tonight, as it's been a really long stressful week, and I need some sleep now. I'll post more as soon as I have a chance.
