"The Scream." This is what I'm working on now. I think it is going to be my biggest challenge in the famous artwork plate series.
I have already thrown the plate and carved the basic lines into the plate. Yesterday I bisque fired the plate and today I plan to start painting.
I'm using majolica glazes like I have for all the other plates but I think it would be a lot easier using underglaze pencils. This is going to be a test of my brush stroke abilities.
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.
