Slip sliding away.
A day of decorating was on my agenda for this feisty friday. I attacked my new cups / handled dishes with the rule that no two were to have the same decoration and that I wouldn’t allow myself to use exactly a pattern that I already use.
So here they are.
I think this one above is my favourite.
Maybe this is why they call it slip!
I’ve been gradually decorating these plates for the last few weeks, slowly slowly a bit more sgraffito
every now and again which is not at all how I usually work. They are both a little mad and a little different. It’s fun to do some very random things every now and again.
In The Netherlands we saw some pots that had very very fluid writing, so fast that you could barely read it. I quite fancy the idea of writing something maybe on the back of a plate about what the day’s been like, you know something along the lines of “oh what a nightmare, everything has gone
wrong today, roll on bed time” or “happy sunny day, what fun to make pots”. We shall see, but anyway the last of the handled cups / bowls got a bit of fast lettering. Fun fun.
