Porcelain Pints link to this group

These pieces can be used as drinking glasses or flower vases.   They are based on the classic pint glass shape,  slip cast in porcelain, hand painted with glaze and fired to cone 5 or 6.  The colors and weights vary widely.  Personally, I like the lighter ones for drinking because they are thinner and hold more liquid, and the heavier ones for displaying flowers because they make the arrangement bottom heavy and are less likely to break if knocked over.

My Church Homes Series link to this group

I had leftover magenta, orange and green paint this winter and an hour left in my work day.  Recently we had visited our friends’ new home, a deconsecrated Presbyterian church.  I painted a wild-colored little picture of it and I loved it so much that I decided to paint every church I have ever called home, from childhood, through Pentecostalism into adulthood and… deconsecration.  Or deconstruction, as some would say.  I made First Baptist big because it’s such a glorious building and I wanted to be able to paint in every stone block.  Later I learned (from the owners of the ex-church, who are painters) that this style is called Fauvist, from the French word Fauve, meaning wild beast.  Perfect.

Corn

Every year in the Crop Arts room at the state fair, I admire the dried corn while I’m waiting in line to see the seed art.  Last years I took pictures so I could make these paintings.

Beans

A friend gave me seeds that grew bright red-orange flowers and huge, delicious purple and grey variegated beans.  One of the plants produced peach flowers and cream and brown beans.  Each year I pick out the best beans to save as seed and I make chili with the rest.  Last fall they were so beautiful that I had to paint them, amplifying the colors ever so slightly.
