The great experiment.

One of the most challenging things about being an artist is coming up with new ideas.  Yes, inspiration is everywhere, but, some days I just can't see it.  This great experiment.....was actually the result of my feeling very blue.  We have spent at least a month of the year on the Oregon Coast until this year.  I miss it terribly and my longing for the crashing waves and breezy days at the beach resulted in this piece.  The texture makes me think of the water droplets and the movement on the top of the bowl itself are the waves moving to the sandy beach.  The hardest part was coming up with a glaze combo that would, at least,  resemble the colors of the sea.  No small task. I used several glazes. I think I succeeded.  Do you?
