BowlofDragonFirst

A couple of weeks ago I was trying hard to make something practical and usable. This is what I got for my troubles. The clay is red clay, the same as in the Little Dragon posted earlier. This is fired and glazed two times, though. Once with a dark red glaze and once with a blue one. This makes for interesting effects. I have no idea what I will use this little bowl for, but it is quite endearing. It is approximately 15 cm long. Just click on the images if you want to enlarge them!

In other news: I have recently returned from Austria (visiting a good friend in Wien) and Germany (Amphi Festival in Köln). I had a great time travelling! No (very little) drawing, though. Got to watch several bands I have longed to se live, among them Fields of the Nephilim, Die Form and Santa Hates You. Sort of annoyed at missing Alien Sex Fiend, but that is the nature of festivals. It was freakishly hot. In Austria I finished Jasper Ffordes Shades of Grey (more on that book later) and saw Hitchcocks The Birds in an open air theatre.
Upcoming: I am planning to make propolis and honey soap when I return to my soapmaking equipment in the middle of August. I bought the Propolis in a small honey-and-related-items-shop in Wien.
Upcoming artsy stuff: still working on an RPG illustration of a dwarf. Also got an idea of something I might draw to sell on RPGnow.com that will take a little work to get done, but right now feels very exciting.
