Love Mask no.15, 2020, Ceramic: Stoneware Paper Clay, Underglazes, 7 x 7 x 1 inches.
Hand drawn images painted with underglazes, fired to cone 2, can be used functionally or hung decoratively.
As time marched on last year in quarantine, I found myself needing to use more color to cope and well frankly, since then too. I had a hard time concentrating on larger works so I stuck with the small ones. I also found myself adding masks to what had initially begun as a series titled Love Gestures. The work includes hand drawn images, vibrant under glazes, and decals created on hand built stoneware dishes. The dishes can be used functionally or decoratively and can be made to hang, by request.
