It has been a couple of weeks since I have posted. Sometimes life gets too fast and you have to slow down. There were many delays in getting the materials I needed to move forward with my current projects.
But those delays have ended. You may remember that I was working on some sculptures. You can learn more about how this piece was built and created here.
Here is what the completed sculpture looked like glazed, before firing:
What a lovely shade of mint green! It kind of reminded me of this peppermint candies that were pastel with round sprinkles on top.
And here is your first peak at my new raku sculpture:
My goal when glazing this piece for the raku was to get some of the red/brown metallic colours on the piece of the trunk and some of golden silvery metallic colours elsewhere. Imagine my delight and excitement that I was able to recreate these effects on one piece! Not too mention the iridescence that was just an added bonus!
You can see more pictures of the ‘Remembrance of Trees’ here! What do you think of the sculpture, now that you have seen it start to finish? Do you like the glazing on this piece, and if so what is your favourite part?
My apologies to anyone who sent messages over the past week or two, I will be getting back to everyone soon.
