Number one~ get back to my roots
And why not? For me, that means:
blue & white (soba cup)
Number two~ plant potatoes and nasturtiums.
Number three~ Mt. Rainier re-do
Enough said about that...
pitcher, circa 1982Addendum~ plates for b & w
That means blue and white plates, which circles back to the first question.
Mr. Cranky and I are pretty fickle stylistically. We like to experiment with different firing temperatures, forming techniques, kiln types, clay bodies, glazes, and so forth. Salt glazed pots, raku, porcelain, earthenware, stoneware; we are seduced by each in turn.
salt glazed jar, circa 1976
stoneware jar, circa 1981
brushwork on stoneware, circa 1999
carved earthenware bowl, circa 1995These are just a few examples of our various flirtations, many more existed before digital cameras so there isn't much to show from that era now. However, we built our reputation with blue & white and always return to it, at least for a time. I feel that time coming on. I just made some porcelain plates to mess around with yesterday. Smiling. Big smile.
