JOSEPH SAND | Holiday 2020
The BLUE firing. Those of you that are familiar with my more recent work know that I've been playing around with the color blue. My favorite glaze creates unpredictable shades of it, from almost opaque (with hints of lavender), to vibrant blue. Mix in some slips and a glaze we haven't used in a while, and we now are seeing vibrant cobalt blue and a creamy, chun blue show up on my work. Blue can be bold or it can be light and soothing. It's a great color to work with. This firing definitely didn't disappoint. This was a blue firing to remember. And, we are grateful for it because it makes up for the difficult firing we had in August ("Earthquake Firing"). Each firing is unforgettable, but this one, especially, was a good one. We appreciate you and all your support. Without it, 2020 could have been a very tough year. Please continue to show love to your favorite small businesses. We will need it now more than ever.
