I've found myself in unfamiliar territory in the studio this week: I have no commitments or deadlines and have complete freedom to experiment. It's a great feeling, but, crazily, also a little intimidating as I have so many ideas I want to explore and don't know what to choose!
Recently, I completed a piece for an upcoming show at Lark and Key Gallery in NODA in Charlotte. It'll be opening in early July- my potter friends Ron, Jen and Julie will also be participating. Here's a shot of my piece (it's a large wall tile) before firing: Here it is after the final firing- it's made of earthenware with terra sigillata, copper patina and a borax wash.
I think I'll be spending time this week working on some additional pieces in this same manner, taking time to do some sketching and planning new compositions.
