A second clay experiment, inspired by a pastel painting produced a few years ago. I enjoyed piercing the clay and scoring the pattern into the leather hard surface. Next week I hope to define the tree a little more using coloured slips – a whole new way of working. Hoping it will make it through the firing process. Looking forward to seeing it glow with a candle at it’s centre! 💛

A spot of pottery with echoes of the Art Nouveau.

Joined the local pottery and am so enjoying handling the clay. I am finding it hard not to incorporate my years of drawing and painting so couldn’t resist the urge to scrape into the surface with a kebab stick and smooth over the incisions with a hog hair brush. Next week,  if it’s dry enough I will be able to glaze it…joy 😁
