We had a fascinating demonstration by Susan Barry at our first meeting of 2017 on January 11. As promised, the artist has just sent us photos of one of the tiles she was working on then - see below. The paler one shows how it looked before the final firing; most of the glaze painting was done as we watched. And of course the brighter picture is of the gorgeous finished piece. Note: that was the afternoon when our power went out, but Sue was a real trooper and went on with the show in the dim studio, lit only by CAC members' cell phone "flashlights." We kept on videotaping during that time too, with a view that had a rather Vermeer-like quality because of the side lighting. The DVD from that demo will be available soon so that any member of our club who wants to can take another look at the techniques the artist used to create her beautiful tiles.
Below are a few snapshots of CAC activities since our last post. Lots has been happening, including two "Show and Tell"s and a new Orientation class which is due to end on Feb 2, after which we will welcome a batch of new members to the Ceramic Arts Club.
