I love making letters. I often use pen and ink, or watercolor on paper. Recently I have expanded into writing on clay. It is not only the joy of lettering that inspires me, I choose a word, or phrase that means something to me.
With this ceramic plaque, I carved out the letters in a clay slab, to which I added a decorative border. I like a feeling of dimension. Painting on four coats of low fire white glaze, the piece then goes into the kiln. Next comes a primitive firing to give that smokey look. Finally I use yarn , decorate with my ceramic bead, and it is ready to hang.
Why this particular message today? When I checked on my blog site, there was an audience from the Ukraine and Russia. How incredible that the internet goes so far. We are all connected on this earth. Thank you for reading my blog written in far away Sedona, AZ.
My wish is for peace for everyone.
