|My glaze fort. Please note coffee aka elixir of life; and Netflix on iPad. Currently binge watching West Wing.|
In the last few weeks I have been spending most time in the Glaze cave aka basement studio, where I barricade myself in with jars of glaze and underglaze. And I paint, and I paint. My pieces are so detailed, and involve multiple layers of glaze. Base coat, shadows, highlights... as if I was painting in watercolors. Then a coat of clear glaze over the underglaze colors. I love that each piece is individual and unique...
I have new designs this year that I have added to my Mythic Nature line of ceramic pendants. All the favorites will be in attendance at Bead Fest, and there are new orcas - thanks to Lindsay, barn owls, sleeping foxes, and the Mermaid of Zennor. A Cornish folktale, her inspiration is carved in wood on a church pew. (St. Senara's Church in Zennor UK)
|Approximately 50 pendants in a load, each suspended on a hook, from a bar of the bead tree...|
Then there is the polymer. And the resin. Oh my!
|All the polymer is still in progress. Theres a lot to do in three days...|
So as of this writing - its pricing and sorting time!
