This week, I’ve been working on a new piece that started out as a base for a previous wooden sculpture, until I flipped it over and liked the negative space well enough to pursue it as a standalone sculpture. I have plans for some further detailing/coiling in the center, but I am enjoying the shadows and ridges inside.

My test tiles came out and although I like the results and complementary pairing options, I’m not so sure that this glaze has a sculptural application. More testing is in my future.

After weeks of slipcasting bones, I tried a black iron oxide wash on a bisqued bone and really like the results. The stain sticks very well in the recessed areas and does a good job of catching the details!
