I had a great day in my studio today! I was so excited to get back to work after Christmas but for some reason dragged my feet, from jumping in. I am really trying to push my comfort zone and work some new forms. Each time something emerges it just makes me want to spend more time in the mud.
I am trilled about this one… we use a ton of lemon in our cooking but it would be great for any kind of citrus. When the clay hardens a bit, I will add a handle opposite the spout, trim the bottom and carve into the juicer dome. This was my first try, so I am excited it turned out so great. I think I will try a few more this weekend.
I made my own little faux-bois tool today using a plastic tube and a glue gun. It turned out to be just the right depth to press into clay. These little pendants are 1.5 inches in diameter and I am excited about the bib/collar necklace to the right. I can’t wait to see how these transform with glaze.
