I also picked up a textured slab that I made at home months ago. Now it is finally through bisque and I can use it for texture on new work. Maybe tomorrow, I will take a picture of my texture stash for clay. It really is quite lovely.
Also tomorrow, I must think about what I really want to be working with in clay right now. I can only throw about 3 lbs at the moment, but there is no end to what can be done with 3 lbs on the wheel! So rather than thinking about just making what I can make, I need to think about a direction and go that way for a while. I did throw one baking dish body tonight, and I squared it off and attached it to a slab bottom made from my newest textured slab. I also draped a lid (also textured on my new slab) and wrapped it all up tight so that it won't be too dry when I return to it next week. It was fun, and I love baking dish forms...covered and uncovered.....bottomless......altered.....textured, yes almost always textured. So I will sketch baking dish forms and ideas tomorrow while recovering from a very busy Tuesday. I love life!
Here is a pic of my new textured slab.....gives new meaning to sitting at home on my butt!
