Looking at other booths helps me decide how I want my own booth to look. I took a few photos of booth displays at a recent art fair in Ocala and I've added the photos in a separate page to my blog. Just click on the tab at the top and it will take you to that page. I've also added a contact page and will be adding finished work to my gallery page very soon, so stay tuned for those.
I've been working on land inspired pieces. The first vase is about seven by ten inches and I've come back to a shape I made a couple of years ago. I'm still working on my booth shelves, painting them. Once I have them ready I'll show you how they turned out, and I'll set up in my tent in my back yard as a trial run.
The next piece is a free form bowl, another shape I've used in the past. It's about seven by ten inches where I'm experimenting with different colors of natural clay slip. My intention was to make the surface look like stone with fissures. I textured the slab and then added three different slips to the surface and then made sgraffito fissures and added a white clay into those. Next time I might inlay the fissures with a solid coil of clay of a contrasting color.
Coming up I'll have my shelves completed to show you, so stay tuned. One more day for the Clay and Blogs Show, so hurry on out to see the show if you haven't been.
