Anne Shulenberger has been doing some sgrafitto on unfired tiles she brought home when the studio closed. Above on the right is one called "Catitude," which is a work-in-progress. "It will look very different once it's fired - for one thing the clay that's so dark now (i.e., the color of the cat in the center) will become a light speckled tan. That's what makes ceramic work so exciting. You never know exactly how things will turn out; it can be like alchemy!" Anne says.
We look forward to seeing John (and his amazing work!) when he returns. For information about the place where he is staying right now, click on this link: www.villaconcuore.com
