Remember that architectural assignment I did waaaaay back in February? (click here.)Finally~ the long awaited results!
I have mixed feelings about it. It was a success in that it didn't blow up in the kiln, and I do like the concept behind it, and quite enjoy the shape of the forms. But, we are doing low fire for this class, and the low fire glazes that are available to us I am not super-duper crazy about. I do think the bright colors make it appear a bit more whimsical, but I also feel it gives it an adolescent feel.(Whereas some of my pieces I adore, & have about the house, this seems more appropriate for a children's room.) I tend to prefer a bit more natural color, and it makes me wonder how I'll go about glazing my next project. I guess in part, that's why we take classes, to find out what works & what doesn't... what we like & what we don't. I may however, revisit the concept again at a later date.
