Gestural Sculpture

Gestural sculpture stoneware similar to Catch the Wind are a challenge in clay. Patience is the most important ingredient when draping clay, has to have just the right amount of time to stiffen so it will stand up without cracking or losing its form.
Draped clay sculpture creates just one original.
These have been bisque fired , ready to glaze with my art nouveau glaze like Catch the Wind.

Blue Poppies

Blue Poppies also called Himalayan
Poppies like shady cool places but I have never been able winter them over. Rare even in there native Tibet, I saw these at Butchart Gardens near Victoria across the waters in Canada.
