For over 25 years I have had a Mac computer. I have always been interested in the marriage of old and new technologies.
I have had some brilliant moments since returning from Korea. The Puncheong stamping suits my love of doing simple routine things. For example I love to split wood. The idea of sitting there and scraping all that slip off though seems too much like torture so I am going to bisque them. When time for glazing I’m going to brush on my white shino, wash it off the high points and let it fill the impressions and then I will glaze them in my darker shino. I am not interested in a completely smooth surface so there will be some tactile quality to the puncheong.
As for the crane. I love that bird. It means good luck to me. So the good ole Mac provided me with a vinyl image of a crane that I can use to resist glaze on my bisque destined for the wood kiln. Here he is perched on my Mac along with my other favourite things- ribs and blues in Georgia, Hiut Denim’s and American ingenuity found in good US sporting stores. Oh and I do love my Mac. We’ll see how long this marriage lasts!
