Wow ..thanks for the link. This  artist is wonderful!  Very Klimt in idea and technique,G. Klimt also is one of my favorite Vienna Artists. 

Your screen printing on clay is definitely cool! Makes me want to try this with students next year! I am looking forward to retiring in 4-5 years and having more than just summers to devote to my work....

Have a wonderful Sunday afternoon Pauline!

Oh, I wish!   the artist is Sol Halabi   and one of my daily blog reads is Art Odyssey http://artodyssey1.blogspot.com  and I often save images that inspire me in form, content or color and which I am then inspired to interpret in ceramic one way or another, this is one of these. More at: http://artodyssey1.blogspot.com/search/label/Sol%20Halabi  My background is in "business", I am now retired and have been for 15 years, art is mostly self taught and as you can see from my screenprinting ventures, I love printmaking and teach a screenprinting on clay class at the studio where I do my work,  and I also love painting and painterly looks on ceramic as well as nature and organic influences.  I wish I could paint like this, but alas, I can only try

OMG again, love your website, and if you could see a sketch I did and I will try to find it and attach here, I wanted to make clay bits to attach to and integrated with canvases that have been painted as sort of 3d items.  One of the sketches of what I wanted to do shows a female in water--and this on your blog reminded me

Wow, nice combo, I love the combination of smooth and rough, also like matte and glossy and natural clay and glaze combinations.  Never heard of these clays.  I will look into them.  I just ordered up a bunch of colored porcelain in 5lb tubs and am going to experiment with these, perhaps with jewelry items.  I used to work with polymer clay and many of the techniques can be used or adapted with ceramic clay, more fun.  I just got my own kiln and just test fired it, so now I need to get busy.

sorry ..forgot to add that I use a Clay called YOU BETCHA MIX./ PEACH STONEWARE..ROVINS CLAY.

The betcha mix is a porcelain like stoneware with no grog additions...very creamy and elastic.

Peach stoneware has a  grog and fires  cone 2-10

What I have enjoyed lately is the combination of them both..the elasticity and strength combination ! see attached pic

The blog thing is quite easy and I have really been using it as sort of a diary for myself and to attempt computer techniques, both with photoshop and slides, and embedding things, I like to stay up on the fun things computer technology has brought us.  Let me know when your website it up.  I don't forsee a formal website for me, although I have thought about it.  The blog is just something I play with and have done so for several years.
