glazing the day away

Wednesday, January 27, 2010

My pendant glazing process is unorganized and messy! I like to open up every jar of glaze (and i have a lot...) on a big table. Shake them up, covers off and I am set!

I often use a paintbrush to layer on the glazes. I dip and dunk and paint layers of different glazes on the pendants. Some pendants have up to 5-6 different glazes, layered on top of each other.

This is a very experimental, relaxing, creative and time consuming process.

Woodgrain texture was added to this stoneware soapdish by using a hand-carved linoleum block.
