This is my favorite piece. I haven’t had a favorite color in a long time, but am starting to gravitate toward greens. Green brings you to a place of calm, peace, and rest. It reminds me of youth, newness, and spring. I like the balance of light and dark tones in the design.
The design was freehanded in pencil on bisque. About three coats of underglaze were applied and low fired. A higher temperature would have altered the greens, turning some brown. The piece was sealed with tung oil. Since this is white stoneware, a low glaze fire would have caused crazing.
Well it makes me happy!
