Going to hit up Trinity Ceramics tomorrow. Excited! I’ve wanted to try all terracotta ware. There’s something about red/orange under a white, yellow or heck, even a blue, that just sets me off into daydream land.
Here is what I picture. Terracotta wares with white glaze. Simple. Stripes of some sort via wax resist a la my heroines Lucy Rie and Christa Assad. There is something solidifying about those stripes/lines. Corrugation, yes, but something else…pattern, waves, on/off, rhythm, movement, endless…in a couple of words, I love rhythmic lines. (could also be the reason I love repetitive humor).
I’m still trying to find my rhythm. Heck, its been over 2 years since I’ve really sat down each day to make something. I’m looking forward to having my genu-wine potter’s stool in from Bailey Pottery Supply…my poor back.
