Happy New Year

After I glazed the clown,I added some particles and fired the piece again,so they are glued to the piece.The particles are made by sliptrailing clay on a piece of plaster.A Happy and creative New Year!

Help,My Tennis Ball is Missing

Nearby my home is a tennisclub so there always plenty of balls.I can use the balls ,with some glaze I glued them to my tiles.No just joking ,I make the balls by myself;trailing slip on a piece of plaster.

White Christmas

It is very unusual to get a white christmas in Holland, but this year every thing in front of my home is white.
I ám working at tiles with a lot of particles(see the clown picture).First I make the particles on a piece of plaster(painting with clayslip or with the slipapplicator) and then I transport the particles to an already fired tile.With some glaze the particle is glued to the tile and fired again.

A white and merry Christmas!

A Christmas Carol

My nickname my wife gave me is Scrooge.I suppose she did that because I ám not very generous.I plan to give her this year a selfmade tile called 'December City'(with a shopping centre in Christmas ambiance pictured).Hope she likes the textures.

A Saving Energy Tip

The world leaders are parking their limos and planes for the climate top in Copenhagen. I felt myself also a bit guilty about the fact I had to fire my climate piece(the melting of Antartica) three times which costed also energy.Otherwise with a mural, parts can be fired a few times more for extra colors, effects,etc.and other parts not;this saves energy.

Two Horses

A set of 2 horses ready.The texture is somewhat 'orbiting' the piece.Maybe doing Zodiac signs is an idea.
