So much so, that I have managed to get all sorts of other computer tasks accomplished as a sort of procrastination technique. It can be tough to face one's own work and look at it with an eye towards constructive criticism.
Though I'm still not sure what to say, writing this post will at least force me to think about my work.
Both batches 1 and 6 seem to work well as a grouping. The Minis in Batches 3-5 have more individual appeal to me, and look more jumbled when seen together.
Batches 4-6 all came out of my 100 Mini Challenge. (Though I only actually made it to 75. Bummer!) As intended, this exercise forced me to try things a bit out of my comfort zone. Some of these experiments, new techniques, glaze combination, and slip patterns are successful. Some are not. But what I've learned from doing so many in such a short period of time created a huge learning curve! So, it's true. Even the failed pieces are essential.
Thank you Brian, Meredith, Paul, Patricia, Linda for your comments and critique! And thanks Carolyn, Bonnie, and Dad for your emails! I truly appreciate you taking the time to look over my work and offer feedback!!
Off to the studio now!
