Harlequin or Art Deco?
Sheila is taping off sections of the box. She will brush on our mirror black and then she is going to give John Britt's Crack a go. John had a nice idea of applying Bruce's Shino, bisque firing and then rubbing in black. See his post on ClayClub.
When dealing with a box you can't do any better for referencing than looking at architecture. I refer to this decoration as Art Deco but she prefers to reference the Harlequin. There is soooooooo much out there to bring home to your art.
I'm off for the day to help the students at Sheridan with a wood firing. I feel invested in their work for the show at the Gardiner Museum of Ceramic Art in Toronto on April 8Th. This will be followed by Bruce Cochrane's show on April 10Th at David Kaye Gallery. Two shows I can't miss.
