the results of art journaling in clay
School has finally finished for the year and I have a bit more time to spend on my poor neglected blog! I had a lovely surprise the other week when my eldest son finally remembered to go back into his school and pick up my ceramic tiles. They do a short art course for interested parties every year and this year I decided to try my art journaling techniques in clay (original post is here).
It was a bit of a lottery really how they were going to turn out once I'd put glaze on them. I left one not shiny but I can't decided which one I prefer!
Not that I need a preference! I'm going to try and frame the three shiny ones together and the matt one separately.
I actually really like them as slabs of grey clay!
Just like in my journal I drew some flowers to use as masks, but this time rolled them into the clay to create an impression.
Once they were dry I added the glazes, painting, stamping and splattering them onto the tiles.
It was great fun, and I look forward to next year when I can do some more!
