This is one of the little kusamonos from that old batch, very simple, but a lot of fun. These are textured slabs wrapped around a ball, then I gave this one a thin white wash of terra sig, and a bit of iron oxide. The white gives it almost an opalescent look, then the iron oxide darkens the edges and pops the contrast a bit. FUN! It measures about 2 1/2 inches across and 2 inches tall.
This is that custom scoop I've been working on, completed. It measures about 11 inches long, 4 inches tall, and 6 inches wide. A tan clay, with iron oxide, then its got ash glaze all over and a green over the edges. I'm happy with how this one came out!
Clay has always fascinated me, its many colors and textures, the shapes you can create using it, even the feel of it squishing in my hand. Even after years of playing in the mud I find myself exploring new ideas and I hope my work shows this.
