If you're signed up to my newsletter then you know I had my first solo show this month.
Because we're all staying indoors a little more, I decided that bringing the show online was the best way to brighten your days and bring a little more art into your sight!
The Immersion show came to life after I spent time thinking about my childhood, my continued love of water and my fascination with nature.
Anyone who throws, has a love-hate relationship with plates.
They shrink...a lot.
They bend up when they're drying...
Oh! And if they're not thick enough then it's easy to cut through the bottom of the plate.
Also, if the clay dries after throwing, you can cut off your finger circulation trying to remove the plate from the bat.
The list goes on.
Plates are a challenge.
But large platters do make a beautiful canvas. So, it's worth the effort.
In the Immersion collection, I had two themes for glazing the large platters:
All the platters are food safe and very durable. They're fired at 2200F, which is 1200C.
