A Time of Transition




I cannot believe that it is over 3 months since my last post. Although I may not have been blogging  I have been doing what I enjoy the most, and that is experimenting. Still using the soluble salts I have come up with a new method of applying them in combination with wax resist. I think the results are quite different to my previous work, and I really like them. I have included 3 images and I would really appreciate your opinion.

Very stunning indeed. Amazing surfaces with dramatic movement as a result of the bold brush strokes. The way to go John. Great to see you are experimenting all the time. All three pots are just fabulous. The colours and depth achieved through the various layers make these vessels very special indeed. Cant wait to see more.

Honestly, I am loving these as well as the images running through the side bar. Really beautiful.

I like these - they have a stronger presence than your previous ones.

I've noticed that the forms seem taller than those previously and that there is a sense of freedom about these works too John.

I like these a lot - they are dynamic. In these ones I perceive energy due to the broken up brushstrokes. My eye wants to follow where the marks take it round the surface. I like the height too, and the subtle accentuation of the rim with a hint of band of colour somehow that gives a more assertive and resolved feel to it. No resolved is not right, more assured is what I mean. They feel well resolved as did earlier work. Am I making sense? These are a knock out.
