This piece is drying, and then I'll begin the process of layering underglazes on it for a multicolored sculpture.
Recently needed to write an artist statement about the "conceptual framework of my artmaking" and realized that all of these spiral forms have been about creating joyful works. Some are bold strong shapes, others are just plain fun. The spiral or twist provides a good contruction and glazing challenge for me and there are permutations galore. At least I haven't come to the end of this road yet.
Wherever you are, whatever you are doing ... good thoughts go out to you from my studio to yours.
Hope to see you in 2009!
