Spring has sprung and its time for plates.
On plate days I spread across the studio like poison ivy. There are plates filling the tables while they pass through different stages of drying. I'm currently working with three designs - round w/square insert, octagonal, and five lobed. This batch are all thrown and cut using templates. They will get a layer of slip trailed designs before they are dunked in porcelain slip.
Shanghai has been beautiful for the past two weeks. The buds have just popped into leaves and the city is a glow with the light green tint of spring. I'm amazed at how fast this happened. The leaves seemed to magically appear out of no where. I'm ready for the long days of summer with the 8 o'clock sunsets and warm night breezes.
