I’ve been reading “Surface Design for Ceramics” by Maureen Mills and trying some new things. These forms are porcelain with impressed textures, paper masking, incised lines, and colored slip. I’m excited about them! And always glad to be making new things, especially mugs.
Teapots, 2011 Series, a set on Flickr. A little review of most of the teapots I made during 2011, for your viewing pleasure on Flickr!
