...I took a more planned approach. OK, perhaps I was procrastinating and scared of making a mark, but I just like to plan a bit more. You can't knock 10 years as a lawyer out of me that quickly!
Taking inspiration from the textile design course I attended earlier this year, I picked out from my sketchbook one of my circle designs that I had developed for that course and then plotted out a design for my chosen piece of pottery - a rectangular serving dish.
After much goading from Rachel, I eventually got to work on my piece, using a special pencil (I wouldn't have been able to get the fine lines I wanted with paint).
Not wanting to miss out on the painting action, I also attempted a scandi style classic blue and white striped pattern on an egg cup.
We have to wait until next week to pick up the pieces once they've been fired. I can't wait to see them and will be sure to post them on the blog. Until then, here's a couple of pictures of us in action.
What's your approach to art/design? Do you plan it all out in advance, or just dive in and follow your instincts?
