Diva # 6

Diva number 6, "The Octomom Diva" is here. My Diva series is not planned, they are born. Each Diva comes out exactly as she wants to be, I'm merely the facilitator. She looked like the Octomom to me. Does she to you?
The only exception to this, so far, is Diva number 7, coming very soon...
Observation: Many of my friends get beautiful patinas out of the kiln. I have tried coconut carbon and coal based carbon. One of my first two divas (fired together) got a reasonable patina. Since then, my patinas have been underwhelming, regardless of which carbon I use.
Alas! I must resort to torch patinas!

Fall Art Spree

I know--I haven't kept up with my bloggin'! Come see my new work at the Illinois Artisans Fall Fashion Art Spree on September 16 & 17 at the Thompson Center in Chicago. I will be intorducing a few new divas--including my "Queen of the Nile" Diva. Her photo will follow in a few days. Hope to see you there!
