When I started working in my Dad's studio, I started with what I was comfortable with: Hand building. I was also in love with all of the commercial glazes. #1 you know how they will look on your finished piece and #2 I just love sparkly objects :). I made this half bowl over a year ago. I have displayed it in many ways with many holders at 4 of my last shows - but it never sold. A month ago, I was playing around at welding class and made a unique bowl holder that I thought would complement a less than sparkly bowl. (That's another story). Yesterday, as my mind was dreaming, I just new that I had found a new match. It's as though the metal sculpture was designed around the shape of the vessel. Let me know what you think.
My first "blog" post. I've been sharing my journey as a new artist on Facebook. I've decided to no longer bother those that are not interested and am now venturing into the "blogosphere". This will be more of a journal....capturing my experiences, failures and pleasing successes. I hope you enjoy my story.
