"The chief source of art is man's pleasure in his daily work, which expresses itself and is embodied in that art itself."
William Morris (1834-1896)

Elm Tree

This is the beginning of my Elm Tree design. First I've laid out the tree structure, then I throw out a slab for the leaves.

This is an easy way to make a small slab. You literally throw the ball of clay at an angle onto the table and it stretches it out repeating the process until you get the thickness you want.


We are off to a show in Armonk, NY tomorrow. If you live close by, I would recommend a visit on Saturday or Sunday. Sounds like the weather will be better on Sunday. Admission is $9. For directions and more information, go to their website at www.armonkoutdoorartshow.org
The crafts there are good but the 2 dimensional work is outstanding and there is lots of it.
