Breaking the creativity barrier with color- Paradise Tumblers!

Paradies Tumblers!

Colored underglaze inlay through other colored underglaze layers… I hope it works out in the firing!

I feel like a huge burden has been lifted off my shoulders for now… no more litigation crap for a while… I can see light at the end of the tunnel! For now, I can have normal fickle worries like roommate drama and boys. It’s refreshing to not be under a black veil of anxiety… and it might start showing in my work. I feel like I’ve been trying to stretch my own boundaries already, but now that I feel a little more light-hearted I just might break my own creativity barrier. These tumblers express what I want to be doing– drawing tropical things that intrigue me on the surface of a strong form. I made a new rib in tool making that helps me get the bottom curve just right. I call it my “magic rib”, because it really does seem like a magic trick. The crazy part is that I didn’t even plan on it making such a difference… I wasn’t making these forms when I made the rib to begin with, but it makes a huge difference in how quickly I’m able to achieve that curve.
