Studio Happenings

By Arthur of Arthur Halvorsen Ceramics

So I have been working hard in the studio and doing a lot! I sent 2 huge boxes of work off to the Schaller Gallery in Michigan. (Be on the lookout for their website to upload all of my work that I sent them) I have been hard at work since sending off those two boxes working on a new body of work of more complicated forms and I wanted to share some of the works coming out of the studio these days.

This tiered deviled egg server I am THRILLED by! I love everything about it and that it's probably my best piece I have ever made at Mudflat. I love the center post, the birdcage on top ugh EVERYTHING! It's coming out the bisque today and I can't wait to glaze this one next week!

another new form is this bigger flower brick. I'm dry throwing the basic form of the flower brick and then handbuilding the rest. I see the dry throwing process as more of a handbuilding process then an actual throwing process. (Here's a video showing dry throwing by Ayumi Horie)

I made the Flower Brick for the Mudflat gala that is happening on September 9th (Be on the lookout for more info coming soon!) It's going to include an auction of nationally recognized ceramic artists from around the country.
