John Britt and purple spotted glaze tests

These are gorgeous glazes.

If you haven't seen this video, in the pottery world I'd say it's all over the net. But I love them. And this video show well what he did to get cone 6 or cone 8 results.

Enjoy either the link to the longer video, or the play on screen one!

Purple on clay! Elegant!

Featuring the drawing class at Red House Gallery

 Figure drawing from a live model is historically an excellent way for artists to understand anatomy. It's more difficult than you would imagine. Not just drawing, but doing it within the time a person can hold a pose.

My "Hopeful Dryad" was in a corner in the room with a lot of drawings.I didn't have a figure to make my little dryad statue from, rather a tree which inspired me.

 A painting of a figure.

 I liked working with tinted paper and giving highlights as well as shadows to figures...when I have taken this class in the past.

Tuesday to a museum

This week I want to let everyone know about a show that is currently in The Dallas Museum of Art. It was co-sponsered by the High Museum of Atlanta GA also, where it will be traveling for a display later this year.

I heard about it last week on CBS evening news. The curator of the Dallas Museum said her son had a sensory disability, so she learned how communication was possible without words.

speechless: different by design invites interaction by the viewer with touch, sound, vision, and immersion completely with the artworks.

The catalog says:

speechless: different by design

11/10/19 to 3/22/20 |
Explore the many ways in which we connect to the world around us through our senses in speechless: different by design, an exhibition of multisensory, interactive, and immersive experiences for visitors of all backgrounds and abilities. Created in collaboration with designers, scholars, and scientists, speechless presents unique opportunities for discovering new perspectives through communications beyond speech and words.

Check the link to the show which gives the artists names and more information on their works.
