The Idea

November 18, 2012

Now that I looked at all the past ornaments, it was time to get at it. I started looking at images on the net and just picked things that immediately struck me for one reason or another. What you are mainly dealing with is the property the transparent colored glaze has. It’s a darker color when it’s thick and paler when thin. After selecting about a dozen images, I went through those again and knocked it down to three images that held something. Here they are.

2012 Limited Edition Christmas Ornament

October 26, 2012

It’s that time of year again and the new ornament is almost ready.  One of the hardest parts of the process is coming up with a new image.  After several drawings and several, “oh, we already did that”, I decided to get out the box with all the past ornaments.  I was immediately struck with the variations on the theme and thought I would make that the first post in this series.  I hope you enjoy them.  Which is your favourite?
