Usually I create sculptural ceramic artworks… but lately have felt inclined to create some more functional/bread and butter style lines of work. This has been a combination of both financial necessity and recent trips overseas, such as Japan and Korea, where functional ceramics are viewed as both works of art and as everyday objects that make life more enjoyable.
In earlier postings featuring condiment dishes and trays, and teabowls/teapots the greenware was shown as works in progress. But now the glazed works are ready to go into the kiln within the next few days. Hopefully the results will be great.
This is a test batch, with four different glaze combinations, so if all goes well I can glaze lots more.
I hope to consign these wares in some local gift/kitchenware stores and sell some on Etsy.
