Short update

Hi all!
I haven't posted in forever.So here's a short update before my brain turns to mush.
My shingles pain has come back with a vengeance this past week, so I have to take meds and they turn my brain to mush. Not so fun but I'd rather be mush brained than in pain, but the meds just sort of cut the pain a little... like they stop a part of it but it's still there, like a nagging clawing little brat :P Needless to say I can't drive to the studio when I'm on my meds.

Still I did manage to feel up to getting into the studio yesterday and get a pile of work glazed and in the kiln to fire. I also found 3 new celadon glazes by Amaco that I'm test firing this month. Should get the test tiles out sometime this week. I have 1 piece that is rather large and might be very pretty if it comes out right.  I also have some other cone 10 reduction work that won't be fired for a bit, but should come out nicely. I'm hoping I put enough iron oxide stain on them to make them come out nicely. I need to experiment with a few more stains in cone 10 reduction to see what effects I can get.

That's about it,
XOXO to watchers
P.S. have a blessed Imbolc all!

Got some goodies in the kiln up and coming - I'll post images when they come out! :)

Maidenformed
Whisper to the Maiden: This is a 10" inch high porcelain vase carved in relief, painted with black underglaze and coated with green celadon glaze. This piece represents the maiden aspect and the love and flurry of horses. Th​e horses express many deep dreams, feelings and emotions, both frightening, frightening and friendly. This piece is about daydreams as well as deep dreams.

3 Horses chase the moon by griffinlady
3 Horses chase the moon
Relief carved porcelain tile, horses waves and the moon. Tile was stained in iron oxide and placed into a cone 10 reduction iln. Speckles of green popped up in places along the tile quite nicely. I didn't realize it until I took the picture, but the green speckling from the reduction firing really do remind mr of paint and appaloosa horses. I've known both and loved them dearly.

I am a writer and artists primarily working in porcelain clay these days. I don't do much painting anymore. I primarily sculpt and carve horses, masks, and various scenes in mid to low relief. I have always loved horses and they have always been subjects in my art. I am open for commissions on some similar porcelain work.
