I won't even try to explain my lengthy absence... life just seems to have a plan of it's own and I am learning (apparently, it truly is never too late) to just accept it and go with the flow!
Today I have a little Show & Tell that sums up where I have been Artistically... for literally months, I have been making ceramic pieces that will eventually be used to create Wind Chimes... I'm not exaggerating when I say that I have several hundred pieces (big & small) waiting in the wings to become a chosen component in my next creation.
Below are some pics of a small portion of my unglazed stash...
Here are some examples of glazed pieces... I've chosen a variety of Celadon Glazes, I love the translucent colors over the porcelain... the texture really stands out! (some heavier glazes fill in areas & the details get lost)
I really love to insert glass beads in the mix, just gotta have a little bling to shine in the sun... (another small portion) like any good bead artist, I have many more containers to choose from!!
Voila... production has finally started!
Below is a pic of Chime #1 fresh off the assembly line or in this case, table!!
|Small Wind Chime|
Size: Approx. 6" across & hangs down 16"
The chime sound on this one is created from the glass rings hanging in the center... I made them by cutting rings from a wine bottle using a bottle cutter and then slumping them in my kiln. I love the sound that the glass creates, it doesn't take very much wind to make it sing!
There's more to come...
Hopefully you'll stop by to check out my progress!!
Until then, Blessings & Happy ARTing!!
