Ciel Collaboration and Pottery Classes

Today I had a great day.  I have really enjoyed my relationship with Ciel Gallery and today was another great moment.  The July show at Ciel is a collaboration show and I asked Tina Alberni to collaborate on a piece.  She is a phenomenal artist and she came over to my studio this morning and we designed and painted the piece.  The colors will be vibrant once they are fired with the clear glaze.  I can't wait to see it finished.  The reception is July 3rd.

The last few weeks I have been working on a new style of work using slips and stencils.  After going back to Michaels and getting more stencils and adding some colors to my selection I am so excited to see the pieces fired but I just couldn't wait to show them off.

The beer steins below were made for two reasons.  The first was for the Drink Up competition in July.  I will pick my favorite for that one.  The others would make great Father's Day gifts.
The two pitchers below were made using new stencils.  The one on the left will be bright periwinkle blue and turquoise.  The one on the right is tan with the pattern sponged with dark blue, light blue and purple, and two black birds.
If you would like to learn about using slips and stencils you can sign up for the wall vase or pitcher class coming up in June.   We will have a fun time creating and you will walk away with a piece of art.

I frequently show what I am doing in the studio on Facebook or Instagram @newdaypottery.  So please follow me there if you can.
Last week I sent these pieces to Our State Magazine for review and it sounds like they will be getting pieces for their Fall catalog.  I haven't heard how many but it sound like they will need them by August 10th.  I will give updates and let everyone know when they can be ordered.
