Slip. To a ceramic artist like myself it is clay mixed with water to a thick liquid consistency. When building pots it is used to help "glue" pieces together. Now that I am clayprinting, it is the medium I use (with pigment added) to put color on my clay slab.
Slip is an important part of what I do, but the making of slip is not creative or fun. Oh, it's not hard, or necessarily time consuming, just not the fun part of clay printing. So when it comes time to make more I have to talk myself into it, reminding myself- it's not hard, it's not hard. But clean-up is yuk! But always easier in summer because I can go outside and "play" in the hose ( clay is tough on plumbing). But once I have the job done I have several containers ready to make more colors, and I just got three new colors delivered & I'm excited about trying them.
I just discovered photographer Pedro E. Guerrero (but then I always have my eyes & ears open to art related subjects to pass along to my followers). Mr. Guerrero had a wonderful career photographing artists, and famous ones; in particular: architect, Frank Lloyd Wright, and sculptors, Louise Nevelson & Alexander Calder. He picked the challenge of photographing the works of three dimensional artists which must require a special eye. He also photographed building interiors for several "home" magazines; these pics are works of art in their own right. He left a legacy of great photos for our enjoyment.
Peggy Lee was a working artist. Her quote is a message she reinforced by example.
She was a singer, composer, lyricist, & businesswoman (she even designed her own home decorating line pre-Martha Stewart). She was a contemporary of Elvis, and at one time she had more money in the bank than " the King". Peggy Lee, a talented artist who worked to make her talent pay off.
I have two passions in my life: the Word of God and Art. I am basically a self-taught artist, but take every opportunity to learn from others. I love acrylics and usually work in mixed media collage, but my latest experiments are with ceramic masks.
