My Favorite

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!
