Home at last from all our spring travels.
And the studio is ridiculously clean!
I’ve abandoned all sculpture work for now. My heart isn’t into it and that’s why the Virtu sculpture is 100% not happening. I only wish I had recognized this before I went through all the time and expense to make his waste mold etc.
But I did contract for a table at Breyerfest’s artisan gallery for 3 nights in July. I don’t have a new sculpture to introduce, so I’m going to spend the next 6 weeks glazing chinas. Based on the enthusiasm for custom glazed Hagen-Renakers at the recent Clinky Mayhem event, I decided to get out some of my remaining stash of H-R bodies and glaze them to sell. Plus a few other pieces if I have time.
Started already are a large and small Zara Arabians, which will be light grey with minimal dappling. (So that it won’t take me two years to finish them, ha!)
Also a Roundabout Cob in chestnut with a fun white pattern.
I’ve also begun a bone china Boreas which will be a very dark dapple grey, almost black. Plus an H-R Ferseyn in silver bay and Sheba in chestnut sabino. We’ll see how many I finish in time.
They will be sold first-come, first-served at the Breyerfest Artisans Gallery starting Thursday night July 12. Here’s a link to the AG info.
I will also be bringing my overglaze paints/palette and a white china horse, and I will be demo-ing china painting the three nights I’m there. I hope to see you!
