Four pots just fresh from the kiln: 2 with just 1 glaze coat (grey shimmer); and 2 others with a base coat topped with Waterfall #1 along the top edge, in order to create drip effects in contrasting colours. All of the pots were successful experiments…though the flying man on waxwing brown glaze was my favorite.
Predicting how glaze combinations will look coming out of the kiln is like trying to predict the weather. Glaze colours look completely different before they are fired in the kiln, where chemistry and random effects combine to produce new (unexpected?!) colours. For instance, the grey glaze looks like rusty mud before it’s fired, and the waterfall glaze is a pale mossy green.
As shown in the recent movie, “Maudie” (go see it!), this is a panoramic shot from the doorway of her house, which has been dismantled and then reassembled indoors, like a ship in a bottle, inside the Art Gallery of Nova Scotia in Halifax. She was small in stature, but a giant among folk artists. With an even bigger heart.
Located in downtown Halifax Nova Scotia, outside the NS Art Gallery: “Origins” (1995). What a pleasant surprise! Tucked around the corner, just outside the NSAG entrance. More info is available here:
