I have been honoring my inner old-lady and going to paint pottery with my dear friend Sheila. My first piece was a doggy dish for my delightful Abigail. This is my second piece ever. I am not super thrilled with all of it - but it definitely has the dreamy look I was going for. I am particularly in love with the acorns!
What am I using it for now? A sugar bowl of course. Otherwise Kouki sticks his stinky litter-paws into all my sugar. Not so nice.
This is the piece from another angle. I think that I am really taken with unbalanced compositions on round pieces. The thought of doing the same thing over and over throughout makes me cringe a bit inside. I do want to keep working with washes, but its really my line work that needs some improving. I also tried out the new satin glaze at Fire Escape and I really like how it turned out. Has more of an earthy, old world feel.
Finally, I know that you have all seen this pretty little angels face before - but I was never quite happy with how light he was. So I grabbed my graphite stick one day and just went to town. I feel much better about it overall now. It still has the feel of a white buffalo - without just being kinda washed out.
Thats all she wrote
