New Work

By Arthur of Arthur Halvorsen

This is a shot of my new work that came out of the kiln this week with the dots that I have become neurotic over! I dreaded getting into something like this in my work but I really enjoy it. I have the belief that glazing should take just as long as the making process. Once the piece comes out of the bisque kiln it's only half done and a lot of people in ceramics dread the glazing. I look forward to it, I think of it as another time for layers of information and I love to layer my pieces with lots of information. It not only makes physical layers but also makes visual layers of depth. I see the dots and damask patterns as sort of a wall paper pattern that's falling off the walls and revealing the layers underneath. Enjoy!
