Coiled cherry

This is one of the final pieces that i wanted to show you this started life as a long piece of clay coiled in to a bowl shape. to execute a shape like this the two halves had to be done separately and joined together by another coil. This did actually start life as an apple but the shape was totally wrong, but with some consultation with my tutor we decided on a cherry which i stained with a velvet glaze and painted with a red oxide to give me a deep red colour, this was then highly glazed leaving the stalk as a contrast to the cherry.
And as usual here is my close up, you can see there is metallic marbling on the surface this has come from the clay and has risen through the surface.

Thanks for watching, there's more coming soon xx

Good morning all and its so glad to be back in the land of blog, I hope everyone is ok and that you are enjoying the beautiful weather, me I'm sat in college having had numerous problems with my Internet at home i decided to use college resources to get done what i need done but hey isn't that what they are there for, so a lot of what i display will be Art and Design (bla bla) and a few card and sewing projects yes i have been a very busy bunny making all kinds of soft furnishings for peeps and handbags and jewellery rolls and shower caps mostly personalised as well(pictures to follow) so now i have kind of blagged my way through the course this year, next year things will really hit the fan as i have to start looking like and talking the talk if you know what i mean, a fine art student, putting everything i have learned throughout  the past two terms has not been a waste of time, believe you me it has tested me to the limit, there has been tears along the way but, mostly laughter, as I have found a lot out about myself and my fellow students.

Thanks for listening speak soon
