New Designs

One of the things I really love about clay is how you can apply just about any process to it in some way. My favorite example is printmaking. I usually treat my ceramic surfaces the same way you might work on a painting or collage and then layer prints and stamps to create the imagery. Over the holiday break Michael and I went to visit his parents in NJ and made a trip into NY city for a day. I was on a mission to find this little shop in the village that sells vintage image stamps. I bought a ton! I'm now finally at the stage in my process (when everything is dry and painted) where I can begin printing. Here are some designs that I have been playing with...I'm super excited about some plates that I am working on right now and hopefully will be able to photograph tomorrow. Stay tuned!
