Finished Sunflower Bowls

All glazed and ready to go!

Glazing Process:
Students painted their bowls with Amaco underglaze. Two coats were recommended but not necessary. Afterwards I dipped each peice into Duncan dipping glaze and pieces were fired to Cone 06. The results are bright and beautiful!

Curved Line Drawing

High School Drawing and Painting students started off the school year with this hatching project. The class discussed ways to create Space and completed a few Hatching exercises before beginning their final project.

Step 1
Break up the composition using curvy lines.

Step 2
Using Sharpie, color in background space black.

Step 3
Begin to add hatching wherever lines (or ribbons) overlap.

The steps are very simple, yet the results are striking!

(A few students chose to use crosshatching instead of just hatching)
