farewell to winter and hello to spring
Spring is here and winter went out with a mighty storm around here. The photo was taken by the Pacific Ocean on Hwy 1 in Northern California. I printed it with saturated color on cheap printing paper and had it on the work table. Breaking for lunch, I placed a fig I just burnished on top of the print. It went together and I had to take a picture. The fig is still greenware---it hasn't had a firing. It has about five layers of terra sigillata each layer burnished with a polished pebble. Right now it is cool to the touch and very glassy. Once fired it will lose some of its shine and deepen in color. Its warmth waits underneath.
