A carved vase.
Not intentional, just two kinds of clay in my slop bucket which when re-wedged, gave a nice mottled almost marbleized coloration. The tree carvings are accented with a black Stroke & Coat by Mayco. Then the whole vase is painted with one coat of Mayco's matt clear, giving that subtle shine that doesn't bounce light off of pottery so much.
The paradox inherent in making art, of course, is that it's an act involving both giving and receiving. Like breathing, it requires both, the inhalation and the exhalation. We receive the gift of inspiration (inhale), give it shape and form and pass it on (exhale). Terry Windling, blogger, Myth and Moor
