|About the paintings:
The paintings are all watercolor and pencil. They are painted on arches
100% rag paper with permanent Windsor newton pigments.
The style is that of Dewitt Hardy, a renowned
watercolorist in New England and my mentor for 30 years. It is very controlled,
a difficult challenge when using the most unforgiving medium, watercolor.
Corrections can only be made in the line drawing stage. Once the washes
are laid in there can be no mistakes. This means no erasing, scraping,
changing, adding or painting over anything (unlike acrylics and oil painting)
I can paint your home, buissness, favorite view
or even do architectural renderings from blueprints for you.
|About the pots:
All of my pots are wheel thrown and trimmed by
hand. Each one is a signed and unique piece of
art .The stoneware is fired at 2400 degrees. All glazes are lead free and
the pots are dishwasher safe.
Raku is heated to around 1600 degrees.Red
hot, it is pulled from the kiln and placed in wood chips that catch on
fire before it is covered once or twice (depending on the reduction desired)
before it is quenched with water.
I can throw and design whatever you like, from
a saki cup to a wall lantern or funeral urn! You imagine it and together
we'll create it! Pieces on the site are only ideas of shapes and colors
for you to choose from.
