Just a small detour and then I'm back to using geometry as inspiration. You might wonder why I post so many of the pieces I make. It's a good way for me to look at them objectively, well semi objectively. In a photograph clay pieces look much different than they do in person. Certain flaws become readily evident. It might look out of square on the upper right? It was square when I cut it out, hum. Later when they are fired I can refer back to these photos to see what they looked like before firing. Who doesn't like a sunset, so I was inspired to make this crimson sunset in clay; it's about eleven inches square.
Gary and I went to a local flea market to see how the foot traffic was for selling. We're trying to reduce our collections. This time of year it's not very good since there aren't many people and it's really hot under the metal roofs. We decided we'd stick to selling at yards sales in our own front yard. On the way home we saw this egret perched on a fence by the road. We stopped and took his photo and he didn't even move. This white egret is a reminder to say white rabbit on Monday, August first, for good luck for the whole month. Hope you're having a good weekend. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
