"The chief source of art is man's pleasure in his daily work, which expresses itself and is embodied in that art itself."

Late Fall Doubles

Now that Daylight Savings Time has vanished and the cold wind is starting to whip through the bare trees here, I have some photos to show you. Steve worked on another series of Double Petals pieces and although they are not all fired, it seems like a long time since I've posted. Most of the production pieces went into gallery orders.
Some photos of our firings first:

And then the close ups of the double petals:

We resisted the temptation to use different glazes... it is difficult. However, our matt green glaze just can't be beat for its ability to break lighter on the sculpted edges and provide a lovely subtle visual texture. Other glazes interfere with the form too much.

I'm sure you noticed too that the piece in the first closeup actually has three sections.
