Back to the drawing board

Since I have had two successful glaze firings, I am literally back to the “drawing board” (in my case, a sketch book) to plan out new ideas and upcoming work.  I am in full swing with my production work now and it feels fantastic!  I am taking my work in a new direction.  Moving away from the typical dishware and mugs, I want to have a strong focus on “natural light”.  For me, this means creating pieces that can exhibit light (candles)!  I am working on various lanterns, candlesticks, pillar holders, candle pots, and sculptural pieces as well.  I am also including vases and large decorative bowls.  I love when a great piece of art can stand alone, if desired, as well as having functional use.  Today’s studio work will be spent reprocessing clay, rolling out my next batch of tiles and cutting them, throwing collecting dishes, and starting on my next series of Moroccan lanterns.  I also have some ordering to do for some new equipment!  I have reloaded items for sale on my Etsy site if anyone is interested.  I am hoping to post some new items soon.  You can check those out here.
