Autumn leaves & Shino

October 24th, 2014 Leave a comment Go to comments

This time I combined my love of pottery with my passion for paint, and switched to postcard size. My favorite glaze is called Shino, it’s a mysterious glaze that was developed for its whiteness, but its reactions with iron make it a really colorful kind of glaze, with all kinds of creams and orange and almost red, and even black can appear. When reducing the painting size to this tiny format, a bit of the flexibility in doing the leaves is lost, so I had to depend more on composition to get an effect.

    That’s really pretty – beautiful, Mimi. Glad I clicked on the image to view it larger. Makes me feel nostalgic for the present.
