Art Salad – August 7 & 8 – New Date!

2021-07-07T13:46:51-04:00May 5, 2021|

The date is changed to August as it was "iffy" as to whether the June date would be able to go ahead.  We really hope that everyone is better and safe by August.  I'm breathing a bit easier as I have more time to make more "stuff"! If you are in the Grafton area on August 7 & 8, it would be lovely to see you. 10821 County Road, Grafton.

Learning

I just came back after a week away in Doylestown, PA from a course with Lisa Naples.  She is a ceramic artist that I have long admired and I had a wonderful time.  We were there a week and the seven other participants (along with me) all making our choice of sitting animal sculptures.  We didn't know what the others were making until we got to the class.  There was a kangaroo, a sea otter, [...]

Where ideas come from

I was recently listening to the podcast The Potter's Cast, about a potter, Angela White Wenger.  She's doing something amazing, which is capturing spider webs and transferring them to clay.  And I got to thinking, where do all of our ideas come from?  I immediately wanted to go out and try to do the same, but really, it would just be copying her. (and she gets up at dawn to capture these and I'm not [...]

Painting the rabbit

Adding a Decal to a flask

I just loved making these funny little flasks/vases.  I decided to try out some underglaze decals that I purchased from China Clay Art recently.  What fun it was using them.  I used the bits and pieces from one to decorate some heart jewellery.

Releasing a fish from a mold
