I finally took some proper images of my finished work. This is my “amoeba” teapot design. If you like what you see, it’s totally available for sale on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/shop/KirasPotshop
Anyway, I’m really happy with how my work has been turning out with my new clay body, decorating, and glazing techniques. The really cool part is that glazing isn’t a total pain. I think I’m addicted to spray bottles. I use them for everything, and find new uses at least once a week. I now use a spray bottle to “glaze” my pots– I just add a thin layer of flux to the surface to make it smoother to the touch, but it doesn’t drown out or dilute my fabulous colors.
Just the other day, I decided to use a spray bottle with watered down gel as a more eco-friendly and less expensive/smelly version of hair spray. It works awesomely. I’m thinking about using a clean spray bottle for olive oil for when I make pizza crusts– I have a pizza recipe where the dough isn’t aloud to get soggy underneath all of the delicious sauce and veggies, thanks to a barrier of olive oil. Anyway, spray bottles have completely changed and down-sized my way of working to a point where I feel like it would be all too easy to set up a home studio and keep making the same work as I do now. I haven’t been doing much wheel throwing lately, but here’s a couple of nice bud vases:
(these bud vases aren’t on Etsy yet, but soon could be 😉
I’ve been entranced by drawing different leaf types, from polemonium to willow to eucalyptus to gingko. I’m definitely gonna keep rolling with it!
