HAPPY NEW YEAR!
In celebration of a new year, I have embarked on a new project for each week of the coming years. I am calling it the 52 Form Project and will be making a new form each week. I am hoping this will, as Dan Finnegan once said, "stretch my legs" and stretch my creative brain for exploring new forms and variations on forms. I think this will be an opportunity to refine some techniques and put other techniques I have been wanting to play with to work.

I added white slip to the exterior and plan to paint patterns on the vessels with blue cobalt and some red iron oxide:
New project and more photos next week! Stay tuned!
