Julie Eakes helps keep our Funny Things week going with a class sample and a funny blog post. “It’s a cross between an organic piece and a framed piece,” Julie says. She hasn’t decided.
Her Las Vegas Clay Carnival class centers on Delft-like patterns. “You know Delft pottery,” she says, “that blue and white pottery that makes you think of tulips, wooden shoes and the boy with his finger in the dike.”
Her challenge is to use only blue and white polymer and very few canes. The variations come from taking slices at different stages of reduction and recombining them. You can see more of her samples and read the hilarious descriptions on her site.
Don’t you wish you were going to learn about this one-cane wonder? Me too.
