Group of confrontational rats - colour painting and sgraffito (two sets unfired)
Two weeks to go before the opening of the exhibition. Making serious progress. The ideas are coming much faster. What has been a major challenge was to integrate the design on the body of the rats - complimenting the voluptuous forms.The challenge now is to integrate some of the various techniques and processes. Combining the black and white sgraffito with some sections in colour including transfers and lustres if at all possible. What is going to be exciting for the viewers of this exhibition is the diverse range of surfaces developed, all with the same theme. From transfers on a transparent glaze with gold and silver lustre, transfers on vitrified under-glaze colours, to monochromatic black and white sgraffito and some in colour (shown here). I will do an entry showcasing the various techniques up close, to compare the various results.
