Oh Joy!

Do you know this feeling? Walking in the woods and feeling the calmness of nature entering the soul? I live in the Danish countryside and I love the peace and healing that only nature can yield. This painting is a celebration of this emotional experience. Breathe in deep.

Oh Joy!
Oh Joy!

Black silhouettes on clay

Terra.cotta vase - Katherine Scrivens

So as you know if you’ve been following my posts recently I am working a lot with clay these days. I love the simplicity of throwing a clay vase and finding a simple decoration idea.The clay dictates what it wants to do on the wheel! Here’s a terra-cotta vase covered with a red slip. The figures are painted in black under glaze. Now it needs to be bisque fired and finally fire glazed. A lengthly process! I have quite a few vases on the go at the moment so hopefully they’ll all turn out well. I am not a trained Potter, so it is learning by doing and having fun along the way!
