Applying underglaze to "In the Doghouse"
Working with clay is an adventure.
Clay is seductively accessible, yet the challenge of exploring it's infinite possibilities is an opportunity for endless experimentation and discovery. Lately I have been intrigued with making faces that emerge from the clay. These faces reflect an emotion or state of mind that I wish to explore.
I often leave my work unglazed and finish it simply with washes of oxides that accentuate the interplay of light and shadow on the natural color of the clay. Other times I add color to the surface with applications of underglaze and glaze or use cold finishing media such as paint and pigmented wax.
Thank you for looking at my work.
