I'm currently looking at crows, cause a friend is a "crow totem" person. I made a bird, which ended up looking like a seagull. Oops. That will never do. So tonight I've got some work to do.
So the shrines and things in the works include a few flowers sitting on leafy stands. They will be used for the snowflake crystal glaze that I glommed onto from John Britt in Ceramics Monthly. I tested 9 different versions last week, and only 2 look worth making into dipping glazes. The tests were poured on the inside of little bowls, and brushed on the outside. Brushing doesn't work for these glazes, and many of the poured ones didn't either, giving "brain coral" effects. But two of them are gorgeous drop dead snowflake crystals, cone 6 electric kiln.
The shrines started with the secret room (see my postings of same name). And then I spent a while doing some vehicles (a camper van and a gypsy Vardo). But I've also done some interesting shapes with little spaces and nature type images.
I am letting Tracy Bloom do the barns, which she does so well.
And Linda Starr has some great shrines from FL. I doubt that we'll run into the same market, but mine don't look like hers anyway
So I keep working, and sometimes being too bored to work, and then coming back. As my Art Biz blog coach says, just go into the studio. Just do it.
