Besides the cold, it's so great to get back into the studio this week. I started working on some new designs at the end of the season and I want to get the ideas worked out in my head and start producing them. I like the idea of combining stamping with some slip transfer and decal work. I also want to get some new glaze colors that are transparent to use with this. I'm working with the B-mix clay right now and it's a nice white. I had been buying it with grog, but my next batch will be without. When I took the Diane Fayte class on surface design, she recommended the no grog and I bought some. I like the smooth surface.
