Today is reveal day for the Art Elements Theme challenge and this month Laney chose stars…
When I think of stars I imagine galaxies, nebulas and clouds of colour. I love to keep up to date with all things space, we watched the mars landing the other day, but I particularly love the Hubble telescope galaxy shots. It really shows you how small and insignificant we are on our little blue ball when you see the vastness of space!
This is what I took as my inspiration for the theme, I haven’t done any lustre glazing for a while so this would be the perfect chance to try it out again.
I started out with some sleepy fox galaxy bowls. Each one is roughly 10cm across and decorated with lustre glazes and pure gold. I’d forgotten how much I loved the flashy colours… I’m a real magpie for things like this!
My husband told me a while back that I couldn’t cover everything in this glaze, and although I disagree, I did a few in plain white with gold and enamelled decoration for a bit of variety.
I really like how these turned out, although they use the same base, they’re completely different. I’m usually not very good at glazing, so getting two that I’m happy with is rare!
Thank you to Laney for a fantastic theme, I’ve had loads of fun lustre firing again!
I hope you’ll join me taking part in the blog hop to see what the rest of the Art Elements Team and guests have created. Follow the links below….
