We have an awesome artist today for Artsy Fartsy. L.G.Barnes does pottery work. It’s been said many times here we love ceramics. Mom is just drawn to ceramics every time we go to an art show, or store that carries pottery.
Mom contacted L.G. about featuring him for Artsy Fartsy. Of course he said yes, and then the best part….he offered to make me a personalized bowl so we could show the process. How cool is that?
Here is the first picture of the bowl after it’s been thrown, and he is getting ready to put my name on it.
Here is the bowl right side up, and with my name applied. Then the clay has to dry.
The next step is to apply the glaze, or coloring. Mom chose this nice reddish brown color. Here is the link to the page were all the colors and styles can be chosen. We really like the options for size and color. lgpotter.com.
Be sure to check out all the other work L.G. has on his website. There are some fantastic teapots, and other cool pottery.
This is the finished bowl. We love it!! Mom is very pleased with the design and color.
There is also a blog post that L.G. did showing the making of a pet bowl in more detail. Be sure to check out the website and see all the cool things there. And maybe you can order a personalized pet bowl of your very own.
