surface design


This week's focus is on surface design and it is my favourite of favourites. Our big project for the week is to design a motif and carry it through four plates using four different methods. The image above are my four: Sgraffito, Printing (with a hand-carved stamp), Resist, and Mishima. My favourite parts of this week have been getting to be more illustrative (with the Mishima and Sgraffito) and trying out different applications of underglaze. I've never used underglazes before and I get butterflies just thinking about them! They're so versatile.

There are more photos in my Flickr photostream, if you're inclined to look.
