May the kiln gods be kind. ๐Ÿ˜Š ...

Iโ€™m sorry to say the clear glaze on these mugs bubbled. I tried grinding down the bubbles with a dremel, touching up and re-firing several times. ๐Ÿ™ I have now purchased a brand new gallon of commercial clear glaze for the next batch of mugs so hoping for more success next time. ...

I gave myself permission to play with paint and my gelli plate - as a way to unclog and loosen up before starting new 2022 projects in the ceramic studio. I was feeling particularly blocked, so forcing myself to pull quick mono-prints was a great exercise. When Iโ€™m really blocked and/or rusty, I revert back to drawing in a style that I used in my late teens - 40 years ago. ๐Ÿ˜Š This exercise was about turning off the brain and tuning out the critical internal voice. ...

I am challenging myself to make the time to create something every day. I started this quest in 2012 by drawing a digital sketch every evening. I have now branched into mixed media, clay, and writing, with a goal to explore without judgment and to push my creative boundaries. Thank you for sharing this journey with me.
