I've been driving by this bean crop in Bakersville for a couple of years, eyeing the lines and rows. The repetition of line is so beautiful. I finally stopped by and took some pictures. From one of my earlier posts, I mentioned my interest of repetition in lines and rows, that I convey through texture and pattern in my work. I talked with the owner, who said only two women string this twine back and forth. Talk about tedious. I can't complain about my glazing this week, can I?
It was another place I found myself walking in that I felt transformed by my surroundings. Maybe it's just the scale of the field and being surrounded by all these perfectly spaced out rows and lines. It is so beautiful.
Back to glazing, I'm putting small dabs of glaze on the keys that are on top of the lids now, to match the glaze in the banded area. Fun!
I loaded up the last bisque kiln, this time using my puzzle skills and crammed it full. Another interesting composition of form.
