thanks for popping in
I am rey
I live in the highlands of scotland on the isle of skye.
I come from a fine art background
swapped paints and brushes for dyes and carders working with textiles for a decade and just last autumn started to play with clay..then to paint..then the two inevitably merged and i now seem to be taken by storm by the enjoyment of it.
I am very new to this medium and learning all the time.
I hand shape, imprint and carve the porcelain clay at different stages of the drying process,
then high fire in my kiln to 1260 degrees Celsius.
I then use my gilders waxes blending the colors and applying them in successive layers as I would on my canvas with oil paints,
Applying and erasing the waxes
sometimes pasted on , sometimes in translucent layers…
