What do all of these crazy trays have in common? They were all glazed using a bubble method! Here's how it goes: I dip the entire tray in the base color. Then I choose a contrasting color for the bubbles. I mix a small bit of glaze in a container with some dish soap, stick a straw in it, and start to blow! As I blow, the bubbles grow and pile up until they slowly fall from the container onto the tray. As each bubble pops, the tiny bit of glaze in it pops onto the base color. It is SO much fun to do! Hope you like these!
I was honored to be juried into the 96th Annual Pasadena Society of Artists Exhibition in October. I entered my "Garden Totem #2" and just found out yesterday that it has been sold! I am so happy that it has found a home.
I'll be starting on a new beach/ocean themed garden totem in the new year. I'll keep you posted!
