trying to work past a semi spectacular hair cut (for dramatics replace “semi spectacular” with butchered) i was less than happy with my first round of test glazes. i know i know there tests and i am maybe just a little to hard on myself. but i unloaded yesterday walked away and got on with the day. while out running errands i came across a sign that i snapped (image to be revealed in future post because right now they’re just a couple of print out sitting on the dining room table) and snapped me out of it, after circling back to park and take a picture i ended up at home, ordered two books: david sedaris theft by finding because i am thinking after reading it there might be some appropriation insight from a different angle to ponder and john britts complete guide to midrange glazes because i need to become one with the mid range.
so after work i went back to the studio and looked at the results with a little more kindness and started making notes. what i thought would be my challenge formulating a decent cone 6 black was really not too bad it turns out the challenge is going to be getting my just white,white. promising results for the tiki line with the exception of my the amber glaze, which did not flux out. so i need to remix and see if it was user error or its back to the drawing board.
Monday June 12 i will be featured as Saatchi’s Artist of the Day , you can check it out (and tell your friends!!)
