Spent most the day yesterday painting this plate. This is my third plate to date. Plan on making a set of 12 total for an exhibit. It is going much slower than I thought it would. I'm blaming that on my paying job.
Only thing left to do on this plate is to paint black outlines and some body details on the figures.
The next plate is going to be a real challenge. It is an Escher and I'm still trying to figure out how I'm going to do it. I guess I'll just start painting.
Took my first clay classes at Bemidji State University in 1989. In 2002, after a long break, I started more pottery classes at Viterbo University in La Crosse, WI.
I do not have one area of interest, but that isn't to say I am unfocused. I enjoy making everything from coffee mugs to trompe l' oeil. I work with highfire stoneware, and low fire earthenware. I'm just clay crazy.
