While heavily immersed in clay, paint, and plaster today, I realized something. It seems I've come full circle.
The very first handmade item I sold was made of clay. I sculpted a human hand in grade school, and sold it at an art fair. Now, here I am, decades later, taking orders for handmade items I created out of clay.
I'm working on various designs, and finishes. Although I like working with white clay,
terracotta clay works really well as a base for my "Old World" finishes.
That's not to say that I can't get a nice aged finish with a white base,
but I love that extra hint of color terra cotta adds, after I wipe back the finish a bit.
I'm truly grateful for those of you who have encouraged me to continue working with clay. It has helped me rediscover one of my earliest loves.
I have more to finish.
See ya soon.
