I'm sort of obsessing with these houses and barns right now. I have had my sketch book out and my colored pencils and I have so many ideas for these things. This one looks a bit forlorn, wish I had put feet on it. I think they look better with a little rise off of the ground. Maybe I can gather up some found objects for the feet. These are like little canvases that I can paint on and I am really loving where this is going!
Today I tried out some silos to go with the barns. Pain in the ass, but I like them. Don't look for too many of them though, unless it gets simpler! I'm trying to get a head start on the show I will have next May with these barns and houses. I want to try a bunch of things, and a year really isn't that long, when you think of how many times I have to fire these and there's the waiting on them to dry. I have a lot of colors I want to experiment with so best to do it now while there is no pressure!
Here's my output for the day. Not exactly a production potter here, but these things take a lot of time and have so many stops and starts waiting on the drying.
I had one bit of slab left over so I made a little bowl with one of my stamps. Now I need more slabs because I really like this bowl. It matches the cups from last week. Very noice.
Wrapping it up for the day, got to go grab a shower, with my new soaps from Tig of course! and then over to Raleigh for the NC Landscape reception at the Visual Arts Exchange. I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone interpreted North Carolina. I know lots of folks are having weekend sales so best of luck to all of you out there! I'm hoping that I can get over to Larkspur on Sunday to see everyone there. We'll see how things go. Happy weekend all!!!
