Creatures in Motion

Here are a couple of tiles featuring creatures in motion. They just pick up their odd-shaped legs and get going.

Low-fire clay tiles, @ 7″ x 7″, January 2019, fired at cone 06.

      The technique of negative space painting really gives animals and people a lot of energy in the irregularity of the figures it produces (at least in my hands) and also in the simplification of their silhouettes which I think emphasizes any personality you want to come up with.

    Be still my heart! These are fab. The colors, the textures from negative painting, the shapes themselves- all so much fun.

      Thank you. Ever since I found out about this technique I use it more and more, and I find it very freeing, especially for small scale works like these tiles.
