Still working on this piece but am nearing the end so thought I would share (sorry for the glare on the left-glaze is fresh and hard to photograph yet). Moving into the weekend, I am wrapping up my studio work for the week. It has been chilly out there-in fact my fingers are still a little icy from working today. We had a run of really beautiful warm weather and I had packed up my heater for the season which proved to be a bad choice! Oh well, I worked through the chill and, with frequent hot tea breaks, finally made some substantial progress. This piece is small-perhaps 18 x 24 or so-and was a real challenge. I tend to work larger and don’t have smaller brushes-which if I work small again will be on my must acquire list. I find this lacking the sharp detail I would like but I can live with it…for now!
Happy weekend everyone! I am off for more hot tea, really hot tea.
