I made those slab boxes out of inspiration from something I saw on Pinterest. One of the boxes is for my mom, and the other box is for my essential oils while my collection is still small. I am so proud of these boxes I made. As I was walking to the art village from my car this morning, I found some plants to do indentations and texturing on my boxes, or whatever they would look great on. I ended up using them on a little plate as well as the boxes.
I ended up dripping slip in the box, creating that interesting "drip effect." I think it looks pretty, and after I get some glaze on there, the glaze will react to with the slip, and it look beautiful! I am going to apply wax resist to the plant indentations, and glaze around it. I am so excited to see my finished creations, and to actually be able to use them.
Ceramics class has been fun, I met some very interesting people, learned the skills of clay, and I had a lovely time creating. It is therapeutic to play with clay.
I am so excited for Thanksgiving tomorrow. I have a very full day tomorrow, but that is alright by me. A blog post tomorrow will fill you in.
