Evolving

So... I I had one of my many epiphanies last night that I wanted to do more"experimenting" and allow my work to evolve further... I feel like my pieces are too hard... I know you're thinking..."hard"?????They are ceramic... of course the are hard... but I feel like the spontaneity...the wetness and fluidness of clay had left what first drew me into ripping and shifting the clay and now with more structural knowledge I want to bring it back... the return of the rip... but now I can refine the rip... a structured organic feeling.... Tell me what you think...

  6. Great new pieces. I like the wavy edges of the sugar and creamer and the curve of the handle on the pitcher. Very organic and fluid.

  7. Very distinctive Judi---love the fluid lines! Still you, but evolving to a super-elegant sophistication which is instantly recognizable as your work/style. You're on my personal list of ceramic idols :D!
