Once in a while a piece will come out of the oxide firing with a mottled surface. I find this distracting so I will use whatever is at hand to smooth out that appearance. I have let go of the idea that only fired effects are valid. For me, the final appearance is more important than how I got there.

The paperclay symposium hosted a reception for the artists who presented and demonstrated their work during the weekend. The weather was unseasonable to say the's Laguna Beach for god's sake and it's raining so hard that they are starting to worry about road closures.
It was so very interesting to see and hear how other artist are using this remarkable medium. They are my new extended family.
