Another blazing hot day – perfect for the drop in Cyanotypes – on clay discs
and on paper…
We were lucky with sunshine which flooded the front window
We had over 30 visitors to the Studio
The weather looks promising for outdoor Cyanotypes on Saturday for the drop-in session.
The Exhibition is up – the results of the collaboration are very different which makes for an intriguing set of works to view in the room.
Sue’s pieces are very bold
Mine are smaller explorations
Some I have left as white bisque
We install the exhibition tomorrow and I’m looking forward to seeing Sue’s finished pieces.
It’s been a great collaboration and for me the exploration of Cyanotype and ceramic is just beginning….
Busy months as I was away for part of August and have also been working on a sculpture commission in Liverpool….kiln firings and clays have been taking the solution seemingly randomly – but I’m persevering with finding dark stable blues and adding gold and gold leaf.
I have been exploring how to use acetates on to the bisque either directly or on to slip.
I then wondered how thin I could roll the clay and whether this made a difference to the iamge
As well as enjoying the plain white textured fragments, I returned to trying to fix image and colour on to the larger plain ware shapes.
