'm getting my tent ready in case I get accepted for a craft show in September. Now that I see it all set up I realize I've got a lot more work to do. Since I'm in a selling mood, I also spent some time setting up an online store that links to my website. If it all worked correctly, you can click on the link at the right to connect to my store. If not, stay tuned.
This bike is on exhibit at the High Museum in Atlanta. It reminded me of the bikes I saw in New Orleans during Jazz Fest in 2012. Unfortunately, you cannot buy this bike anywhere. It is a one of a kind piece by Howard Finster.
This is a thrown and altered bowl with markings that make the floating blue glaze look great on the chocolate stoneware clay. I've been working with this glaze on a lighter, B-mix clay and getting a different result.
This bowl was treated much the same way, with a little less marking on it. The floating blue glaze gives a less mottled look to this white stoneware clay and the markings are less pronounced. I like both bowls, especially because they were less than perfect when thrown, but the squared off rims have made them into two special pieces. Floating blue has been my "go to" glaze because it almost always gives a good result.
