Working on fish bowls.

It was a beautiful day in the garden and I was very tempted to take the day off. However, pots are drying fast and I am behind with my work. ( As you can see I've protected the rim of the bowl with cling film to stop it drying too fast).
I am working on a series of bowls with fish on them. These are fun to do. I have a few books with pictures of fish which I work from and just draw directly onto the leather hard clay. It's a wonderful feeling drawing into the clay as there is still quite a bit of 'give' in the clay so it feels soft when you draw. There is very little planning so it's quite an immediate process. I felt a bit like a school child with a new colouring book.
