Happy #mugshotmonday I got a light box for more professional photos. Ooh so fancy. Photography is my second least favorite part of being an artist, right after updating my website. Maybe that’ll happen next year ha.⁠

New glaze tests- Trying to make a good turquiose and red using @bfiess and Kitten’s glaze recipes. I didn’t expect the red stain to offgas and make so many bubbles. These will need another round of testing to tease out the crazing and get a stronger red color.⁠

Chicory 18×24 watercolor painting⁠
So many hours painting that grass, but when you know the end product is going to be gorgeous, you follow that passion. 🤪⁠

Hope to see you tonight at the Hudson Business Lounge in the Third Ward for Gallery Night! I’ll be there from 5-9pm with some handmade ceramic goodies. There will be a bunch of other craftspeople from the Wisconsin Designer Craft Council so it’s well worth a look.⁠

Got a cool new seaweed green glaze on some mugs. Since it’s hot as heck, I’ll let you know it holds a whole beer to cool you down.⁠

These will be coming with me to Gallery Night on Friday. Hope to see you there. It’s 5-9pm @ the Hudson Business Lounge in the Third Ward.⁠

Hex and Star watercolor painting. I have a love for beautiful geometric arabesque tile work.
