Kip Round Two

Okay Ladies... Here we go on our next round of images -- exciting! The first five pots you see here are from the workshop at AR with Matt Long, all soda fired. I'd like to hear what y'all think about the finished look of the teapots...

The last two images are a butter dish I just finished and (surprise, surprise) have not yet glazed. It is cone 04 clay with white slip... any ideas on this one would be great. I am envisioning the soda fired oil lamp going in the lowfire direction with drawings. I've been thinking about the Omnivore's Delimma a lot lately, and it seems to be affecting my work quite a bit... I have some definite ideas I'm trying to convey in this last piece, but I'm certainly still working out how it all comes together. Oh, and I'm a little worried about the cutsy factor, what do you all think??

No artist statement this time around... I'm still working out these ideas...

MONICa's work

my artist statement is not as advanced as the artist who proceeded me. I have only a rough draft of thoughts. This is where i am: When building, I am constantly considering different design elements and the colors to enhance them. the designs, are often inspired by news events, friends and animals I come in contact with. The inspiration they offer often results in the making of pots that I would like share with them or leave on their doorstep with a pointed note. Only a very rough start but, any critical comments or direction would help. MOnicA
