3 Sisters....

Well.. I am done creating the girls...
These chicks are about 24 inches tall give or take so we shall see what happens as they shrink... but they had to FIT IN THE KILN....
This is a commission and my buyer wants to see how some glaze ideas I have will work on it...
The real deal is she would have loved wood fired pieces... But that ain't happnin' so...
I am going to try out some sprinkling of color on some small pieces I still have to carve a little...
Using glaze.... the clay is tan...standard 225... which I like, alone... but hopefully I can achieve something she likes.... I have some ideas...


I am also thinking a lot about pinching clay again... frankly I really like to mix up my techniques.
Bothe creatively and physically it feels good to switch around a bit especially when the thumb or brain starts to go numb and tingly...

  1. These are amazing! I can't even imagine how you create them...but the mystery makes them all the more interesting :)

  2. God, Judi, those things are brilliant. I love this new path you have veered off on. Too bad they can't stay just like they are now. Those pesky glazes! Wood firing would be too cool though....

  3. Lovely Judi!! I also like the clay color - I've been thinking of trying out some darker ones these days.

  4. Just like sisters, they each have their own distinct personality. Gorgeous work Judi.
