It has been a week of color testing and experiment. A much needed week of color testing and experiment. What does color mean? These colors are a celebration. Yet they are extreme bright colors. Colors that often attract or repel. In song birds bright flamboyancy says come hither, I’m your man. In constructed space it means beware pay attention. What does it mean for pottery?
Either way these are the colors that get me. That I desire- dense pale oranges, yellows, pinks and reds. Color and color application have to exploit “ceramic color” play with flux, melting, layers and the difference between stagnate clay molded or applied with a brush then subjected several times to fire, forced to move and change to be a new thing: ceramic materiality.
