So, I have been taking photos and rearranging the seeds. Here is a photo gallery with captions of my thought process. It's a little difficult to tell, but I tinted a couple of the "seeds" with colorant. So, although these have not been fired, a couple of them are a turquoise hue.
I still need to make some filler pieces.
Also, I drew a fox on the rabbit that I made. I like this idea, but will try different drawings in the future.
I'm still working on the inside circle. I plan to fill the turquoise area with pieces that undulate in and out. There is a lot of pressure to work quickly because parts of it are drying out. I think next time I need to put wet paper towel and plastic under the slab. It's difficult to make that change now because every time I move it, it warps a bit. Because of this, I have not been making my 10 cups, 10 handles, 10 seeds. I've only been working on this.
This morning I began scanning in my collections. I had to change a lot of histogram settings to get the dark black. I like that each object seems to be floating in an uncertain space. I am experimenting with high resolution scanning.
