I’m working out how to make my own “canvas” out of ceramic. It’s turning out to be a complicated process. The form must provide a good painting surface, look like a finished piece (complete, and not needing any frame or mounting), and have a built-in hanging system. The test canvases are drying and will be bisque fired next week. Meantime, I am working out how I’d like to image the surfaces. Pictured: Some test tiles in the guise of pottery shards from a culture found in one of my stories.
Works in Progress:
I’ve been working on my Rabbit book: storyboarding, doing more detailed preliminary drawings, and making a dummy picture book.
