Abandoned field with cedars around midafternoon on a hot, hazy day with slightly overcast skies-
An abandoned field overlooking distant mountains at midday in warm, dry weather- maybe early summer.
Mountain and rolling fields on a partly cloudy day perhaps in early summer-
My memory of the view from my bedroom’s north facing window at sunrise two days ago-
A fiery sunset evolved from two rectangular blotches of paint on a piece of scrap canvas-
another mini landscape-
These mini landscapes make me think of the backgrounds of some of Pieter Bruegel The Elder’s non creepy scenes-specifically the hazy atmosphere, patches of light beige fields disappearing in the distance and the grayish blue sky.
My first batch of porcelain “sea forms” survived their first trip through the kiln. These are all completely free form pieces- I wasn’t quite sure what the final object would be and they all have a very organic ( and oceanic) look to them. Next step – glazing.
I got the first batch of porcelain holiday ornaments cut out- hopefully they will survive the drying process- with the leaves you never know.
So the first batch of experimental necklace pendants is out of the kiln. Most of them turned out different shades of brown- I thought they would come out different colors but whats on the label isn’t necessarily what will come out of the oven. They definitely have a nice earthy look to them- especially with the hemp cord.
I probably should have written down which glazes were on each pendant. My two favorites were the Salt Buff on White and the Ironstone on White (at least I think that’s what they are)
