After a long stretch of cloudy days here, I was craving color. I felt like making something vibrant, but not chaotic. Something random but with order; random color. I wanted to use colors I wouldn't normally put together just to see if they worked. I started out with this first plate because aqua or turquoise is one of my favorite colors.
Then I made this lavender plate because that's another favorite color of mine.
Then I wondered what a plate would look like if I reversed the colors, but kept the same pattern. So I did that with the next two plates.
This plate is a bit like a pinwheel. Below is a stack of the plates with two luncheon plates on top
These plates make me smile; the more I look at them the more I like them. The colors turned out great and the satin clear glaze melted just right in the kiln.
For some reason the song by Arlo Guthrie, Alice's Restaurant, popped into my head this morning. Happy Friday to you. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
