To celebrate the eclipse, I am glazing the ceramic moon rattle I carved. The photo shows it after the bisque firing. The next step is to glaze and fire. This is the step that leads to a mysterious outcome even for the most experienced ceramic artist.
I am working on embracing the glazing process. There are about a dozen hand carved ceramic pieces that are waiting in line for glazing. Most of these new works have a moon carved into them and/or are circular forms. They are bowls, rattles and tiles.
There will be oil paintings with moons and bowls I can’t wait to work on as soon as I get some of this glazing accomplished.
I plan to post the carvings as I progress. If I can figure out how to upload the sound of the rattles, I plan to post my recordings. They all sound different.
