Marbled Slipware... Part 1
Will Spring Ever Get Here!
Connecticut has been cold for months. I wake up, look at the thermostat outside my kitchen window and say, "Oh look, its 20 degrees". Again. Sunny days are nice, but I want the snow and ice in my driveway to go away. I want to sit on the porch in the sunshine. I want to plant seeds.
My winter project... rather, one of my winter projects are these slipware plates. They are decorated with colored slips on red clay. Liquid colored clay is positioned on the wet red clay coating and with the use of a pen point colors are dragged to produce lovely flowers, leaves and swirls. Come see me working on these this year at my many demonstrations, web site http://www.eastknollpottery.com/.
