This month I have been working from my sketches I drew during the play Into the Woods at the Ritz Theater. This is the blind contour sketch of the wicked witch out of my Moleskine skechbook. The vase shape derives from a series of figurative vases from Marino Moretti. I am using the same sketches and experimenting with different decorating techniques. The first vases is using a wax resist white majolica technique to show the texture of the trees behind the witch. The second vase is the same image and emphasizing the outline of the witch with my black majolica technique. In both vases I am emphasizing the foot of the vase with the witches feet and using the rim to show the leaves above the trees.
