Decisions, decisions….
This is the first piece in which I used graph paper to achieve a more uniform pattern to the dots (this was brought up in our midterm crit). I complained for a while at first, and yes, it is a PAIN to scrape the inside of each and every hole completely clean of glaze (otherwise there would be no hole) but I LOVE how it turned out. It features my matte clear glaze (yes, I finally have my name on a glaze bucket!), and I’m now playing around with what kind of stitching to do!
I’ve been thinking about the ceramics show in the 840 Gallery at the beginning of next quarter. I think I’ll have two of these, each inside a pin&thread frame, with some phrase in between, like “Hello, again” (referencing the notion that I’m revisiting/reexamining past traditions), in my pin&thread obsessed manner………

Fresh out of the kiln!
Top to bottom, left to right:
Experiments with layering mini frame shape, first oval with even, equal holes (graph paper), navy and navy with matte clear glaze test, and a trial run of stacking mini frames to make a frame! I am excited about this one!
