How i work: Finishes.

The texture and application of underglaze color create an ancient look to the piece. I use tools for the final shaping of the wet clay that have teeth like that of a saw blade. This gives me some higher and lower surfaces. After the first firing, i start applying color with a full wet brush. Underglaze goes down into the valleys of the texture. Then i come back with another color for the upper ridges of the surface and apply that color with a dry brush technique.

 I like how this owl turned out. She looks so calm and centered as she looks out at her world.
 the colors are kind of amazing if i do say so. i work fast and just kind of surrender to the process allowing my heart to decide what to do and keeping my analyzing brain silent.
i never really know what will happen. each piece feels like a gift from the universe. i am grateful to be part of the process of their becoming : )
