Gas-fired redware mug, decorated with slips and sgraffito.
Daffodils have countless associations, ranging from spring festivals to good luck. They push through the surface of the soil in early spring, and sweet-smelling bright yellow blooms dot the Foothills by mid March. Captured here with clay and glaze, this pattern evokes memories of those first warm days of the year when tiny bright green leaves re-emerge in the woods and flocks of robins come out to dance in the fields. Each piece is hand painted with layers of slips and then incised with a sharp tool to reveal the clay underneath.
