I’ve been playing around with some new glaze combinations, for almost a year now – intermittently, but have now got to the point where i need to call the new work something other than…..”these are the new glazes i’m working on”……there is still way more to explore, but for now i’m settling on this mixture of glazes.
I did a bit of a poll with some friends and family and some of the suggestions were: Sea Glass Glaze,
Into the Sea Glaze, Mystical Ocean Glaze…..and finally i settled on “Oceanic Glaze”. I wanted something that would suggest many aspects of ocean life….waves, water, coral, shells, and sea glass!
My plan is to use these glaze combinations only on large and small, one-of-a-kind bowls, oval and square platters. Each time i apply the glazes i get a variety of results so i don’t intend to create regular production work, like mugs, teapots etc., with them. It was fun getting suggestions and playing with the different ideas, and now i can reduce the use of my words when describing this new work!
Finally the apple blossom is in full glory, there are signs of green things sprouting in the garden, but man has it been way too cool for this time of year, i reckon we’re almost 2 weeks behind!
And just a reminder….THE SHOWROOM IS OPEN…..TUES – SATURDAY, 10 – 5…..any other time by chance or just call ahead!
You can also find me most Wednesdays at the Baddeck Farmer’s Market, just beside the library, from 11 – 2.
See ya soon i hope !
