Exploring new forms
I have been trying to broaden my form knowledge this weekend looking at seeds, succulents and cacti. I have been using different methods to construct the forms and trying to explore new shapes and scale. I am looking forward to glazing these new sculptures.
Miniture sculptures are fired and out the kiln. I am really happy with the slip colours, they have made a smooth surface and are vivid in colour. I think I may apply a transparent glaze on a few and see if they are more successful when shiny!
Exploring affect through painting
The other half of the week I have been painting, creating artworks which use bold colour, pattern, accumulation, structure and a balance composition to investigate what overall affect this has.
