So my first batch of tree stump porcelain candle sticks are glazed and fired. I chose a warm white glaze that when fired produced this nice matte finish mottled with patches of pearl-gray. I also made a few that would make a nice flower bud vase (or pencil holder) and a few shot glasses. And like most of my sculpted works these are very animated. I have another batch with darker glazes I will be posting photos of soon.
Some very soft atmospheric effects in this piece- it looks like maybe a bird’s eye view of one of the gaps in the Massanutten complex of mountains east of here in rainy, foggy weather- perhaps in late Winter or early March.
So I finally have the results of my second batch of leaf shaped porcelain spoon rests and soap dishes. With these I tried out a number of different glazes and experimented with layering and application.
