brushwork, a whole new DIRECTION
(painted cups by Gay Rith)
SO as I have said lately, my doodles have moved onto pots for the first time (other than simple drawings on the bottom). This is new for me and an experiment that is working very well. I brush special pigments onto the raw clay and later glaze the inside of the piece dark glaze, clear glaze on the outside over the picture. I know, I try all kinds of pottery methods, its so much fun.
Example number one here is at the request of one of my numerous pals from high school, Sasha. Her husband makes the capuccino every morning but they needed cups JUST THE RIGHT SIZE (no problemo) to fit into the machine, and I noticed on FB their cat Nina and dog Frye. Mmmm, looks good I think.....
