In the studio...

We have been working on new forms and designs for the spring season.  As for my work I have been using Starworks Okeewemee Medium clay for my thrown and altered line of containers and it has proved to be yet another excellent clay body from Starworks Ceramics. I am making covered boxes, cruet sets, mugs, tumblers, large jars, bowls and plates in this lollipop design.  As well as this design I am also producing work in the Stardust and shino designs. I will post some photos as the work starts to come out.

Stephanie has been working toward a show at the Green Hill Center for NC Art in Greensboro.  She has been working with earthenware clay and employing several different techniques for surface treatment.  The surfaces are a combination of decal and silkscreen decoration.  She is trying to impart a strong sense of nostalgia through both the images and the designs used on these pieces.
