1st Thursday Open Studio, October 1 from 5-9pm

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.

Come see my new vases and tiles on Thursday, October 1 from 5-9pm at clay@3 in the Northrup King Building.  More information below.IMG_6864 IMG_6852 IMG_6849
