June 3rd, 2011 – Back on the case

With all the work I’ve been doing recently painting & firing I was in the mood to do some of my own work. Plus it was my cousins’ wedding so id rather give a gift that was made and even better if I make it myself so incentive to work!! I have been in a bit of a rut with my own personal creativity so this kinda pushed me into getting back on the case.


I don’t know what took me to bamboo painting… but anyways that’s where I got to. I wanted to use slightly opaque white glass, but I experimented with green and blue and fired up about 8 different designs. From these I got a couple of hangers, I really like the way they turned out and am going to further investigate. It’s a lot of fun painting bamboo. I watched a whole heap of youtube videos and the brushes used are quite similar and the paint lent itself rather nicely to this style. So I’m going to defiantly try some more out.
