WHOO HOO!



You know how a color sticks in your mind, and you want to be able to get it right? I finally did! This Stormy was for an article that will be printed in The Boat (the RESS magazine) showing the stages and techniques of ceramic glazing. Hoping with all my might, every molecule in my brain sending positive messages to the kiln, (and a good dinner out, which brings good karma) I could hardly contain myself when I went out this morning to check the kiln....

He will be up at auction as soon as next week, when I can get some light box photos too which will show his subtle dapples even better! These photos were taken at the beach this morning, and on such a bright, sunny day it's hard not to get a lot of glare. Anyway, a sneak peek, and you will see an announcement soon for his auction...

Now to decide on a name!

Wow!

He looks like Heathcliff from that Bronte story to me. All windswept and rugged.

Cool beans!

While the "overcast" pictures are lovely and really show off his color, these on the beach are perfect! As Tara said, it's like he's actually standing on a windy hummock, squinting and popping that lip!
