a bit of collage!
I've been playing with paint and paper.... came up with this...
...onto an initial drawing of the vessels, I cut paper to fit around the objects, above and below. The pots are painted in water-colour and the swirls and blots are in acrylic. I may add more to this... I want the finished thing to look really meaty.
I wanted the feel of this to be Naive and for the emphasis to be on texture and materials rather than seeking to achieve perfection in representation.
The bird jug in this image was a gift to me from an x-student. It is created by the ceramicist Laurence McGowan, these a link below to his website.
Another ceramicist who is a favorite of mine and creates vessels with representations of birds on their surface is Kevin Warren, see his work at the Bircham Gallery Kevin Warren
