Painting My Easter 'Eggs'

The tour the France is coming,a big bicycle sport event in Europe in juli, so I want to have quick a mural.I 'sketched' today some individual particles ,and later today - in the afternoon-,I will glaze them.The large bicycle is cut into 'minimural pieces', because I want to fire this quick s'grafitto sketch of the biclycles saterday. The other picture is an experiment with a gold glaze with contrasts,I designed the glaze earlier this week,and it is raw applied to the greenware.I ám curious about the result after firing.Happy Easter everyone!

Contrast with Underglaze

A wash with the underglaze brown and black,in the greenware stage.It makes the letters and textures better visable.The windmills and the boat are for my new collage;I love Holland.

Buy with Love

A client ordered some sayings;'What you do with love always works'.I go try to sell also some sayings to shops but then with the saying 'What you buy at{name of the shop}is always good'.The owner of the shop can give the tiles(with his name) as a gift to best clients.The sayings are easy to make by pushing clay into molds.The other picture ;streetnames for my maquettes.

Victorian Glazes

I developed a few glazes,victorian style, in different colors which also ask a special way of applying.The pigment of these highly transparent glazes sinks in the deeper places of a piece, and give shades in several tones.

Info about that, and the way I make the easy to use molds for this type of glazing is at hand.Please contact me for a two pages instruction manual,only for the cost of $10.

Another Sunny Day behind Glass

The sun shines much these early spring days in Holland ,and there is also a clear blue sky-but it is still not much spring-because it is so could.Here last week firing;a beach theme collage(also using figures I have show before).I like the transparent black glaze in contrast with the dull glazed parts in the piece.
