AEDM day 4
This has been the kind of day where you are needed everywhere right away.
A lot going on!
So...I didn't get a whole lot done in my studio therefore, I am showing a piece I had previously made.
This bowl is in a free form hankie shape. It began clear, but with added glass frits and powders, binders and kiln fire the design makes permanent to the glass..some vitreous staining was involved and vitreous enameling both of these techniques are rendered permanent in the high heats of the kiln as well...
remember each color is a specific temperature so each color represents a kiln visit
at said time
if the strict anneal schedules aren't adhered to the project will be lost...as explode.
Then..this is the beginning stage for the next painting I am attempting in the textures class
I am stencil poor and the next lesson shows such pretty stencils...(and I am not hand cutting any today!) so I am going to do the assignment with one of the other palettes and lets see if I am getting the program
I left the background blue..it is actually white
so the jellyfish and water marks (glossy) show
these are the underlayment for the next level...
i did discover that if i dry this in front of the fireplace
it dries in half the time...
I sure hope you had a decent art day
see ya tomorrow on day 5!
