What I Did This Weekend

I worked on my Annual Members Exhibit Submissions.

White clay, black underglaze and sgraffito. The shape is inspired by Victorian porcelain, and the design is inspired by crewelwork embroidery. It’s not as elaborate as my original plan… I figured I’d see if I could get the hang of the “grammar” or crewelwork before I went and complicated it with other shapes… but I’m still happy with it. I started off with two bowls and four teacups. The goal is to submit one or two bowls and two cups. So far, one cup was lost to handle crackage, and one cup has been deemed to ugly to submit, but the rest soldier on.

I also organized cups.

Some to the shop, some to Model Citizens. A handful held back for Fresh Fish (June 23rd! Tell everyone you know!), and more thrown and waiting for firing. The rest of them are gallery teacups. Lots of Star Wars comics and textbooks in this batch.

That’s Wildflowers of Fogo Island and Change Islands, by Todd Boland, The Illustrated Star Wars Universe, by Kevin J. Anderson, and From Roman to Merovingian Gaul: A Reader (Readings in Medieval Civilizations and Cultures:V), by Alexander Callander Murray.
