Compass Rose

 Start with the end and begin with the beginning...

 This was another collaborative project with ceramic artist, Jessica Fong.

 The spark for this short series was a Japanese quilter, Yoko Saito. My son found one of her books at a garage sale and brought it home to share. I dove in, totally blown away by what I saw. After our trip back home to Iowa in August, I've been wanting to use quilting design sensibilities as a touch stone.  


Trying to keep it simple. 
    Letting the clay and the slips peek through the glaze. (Cone 5 Laguna speckled buff, tile 6 slip, and a White BP Liner)  

  Now it's time to find my direction again.
