Yesterday, as I sat in my shop looking over all the pots that I was painting, my daughter, Evelyn, came in from just getting off the school bus and after my inquiry into her school day, I was struck, really struck, by the shirt she was wearing and its pattern.
I'm not sure how it will translate itself onto my pots, but I'm sure something interesting will emerge. The colors remind me of Iznik pottery. Patterns, too. Maybe I will paint some of my porcelain dishes with some similar colors and slip them into the wood kiln this weekend.
You can find out what happens if you come out next week for the "Mountain" Cousins in Clay here at my place in Bakersville. Go to our Cousins in Clay web site for details and directions.
Wish me luck.
