the surface within..








































Another busy wkd...i spent some deco time today working on the exhibition pieces for the CC sala show at the urban cow in adelaide..again working with cobalt and manganese washes for the owl and the pussycat and some of the textured tiles will have the black oxide wash work, ready now for bisquing and the glazes will do the rest of the surface work, combining the manganese extreme with some black glazes over and under layering.. the sketches from my journal give a guide to the glaze app.. i'm looking forward to the glaze firing as the tests were just great.... and a touch of colour perhaps to add some surface tension to the piece...hope you like..
