Earth Globe #2
I'm excited to be progressing with my 2nd Earth Globe project. This one is larger than the first I attempted. That allows for more detail with the carving out of continents. All land masses have been carved out and removed. What is left are the oceans which support the entire globe, in more than one way!
I am in the process of brushing wax on the entire inside of the globe so that glaze will not attach to it. You can see what I'm talking about if you look back in my blog archives for 'My Blue Marble", the first globe.
And since I still think of Sept as the beginning of a new period of the year, I have a new studio apron to welcome in the fall. Sewn by yours truly!
End of Summer
During one of our recent hot spells, I decided to experiment with nerikomi designs on my structural style of vases.
I love how the various brown, red and white clays contribute to the floral and grassy design. This is very labor intensive. But I got into the zen of it, working in my cool house and ignoring the frying pan heat outside.
