Preventing a Glazing Daze
Glazing can sometimes be a tedious activity. There is a lot of hard work involved and because the pieces have to be fired in the kiln in order to see the true color of the chosen glaze, the reward for this hard work is delayed. One young artist decided to organize the glazing of her clay pieces in her sketchbook. She first drew pictures of the artworks to be glazed. Then she used pastels to assign each piece a color. As she glazed, she used her color sheet as a checklist. What a creative way to stay focused in an activity that requires much patience!
