CUENCOS DE CERÁMICA/CERAMIC BOWLS

Estuve haciendo algo de limpieza en casa, y, aparecieron, estos pequeños cuencos, que yo hice en los años 90. ustedes saben que yo tengo una "inquieta creatividad" siempre estoy buscando algo nuevo, experimentando cosas, de otro modo me aburro. En esa época experimentaba con esmaltes y óxidos para cerámica. yo hacía pequeñas piezas y mezclaba barro, con oxidos, calcinas, con esmaltes brillosos, un poco de todo. Algunas piezas tienen 3 o 4 horneadas. Yo muestro dos piezas desde atrás, para que ustedes vean cómo yo escribía, con óxido con qué, yo pinté la parte de arriba de la pieza. en otras, yo escribía, directamente en la parte delantera. Muchas de estas piezas se rompieron y fueron al tacho de basura. Tengo ganas de comenzar nuevamente con esto. Yo tengo un quemador para hacer Raku, que alcanza 20000 calorías, lo compré hace años, y solamente lo probé, pero nunca lo utilicé... uno de estos días...

 I was doing some cleaning at home, and appeared, these small bowls, which I did in the 90s. you know that I have a 'restless creativity " I'm always looking for something new, experiencing things, otherwise I get bored.  At that time experimenting with glazes and ceramic oxides. I did small bowls and mixed mud, oxides, calcine, with shiny glaze, a little of everything. Some pieces have 3 or 4 baked. I show two pieces from behind, so you can see how I wrote with oxide how I painted the top of the piece. in others, I wrote directly on the front. Many of these pieces were broken and were the dustbin. I want to start over with this. I have a burner for Raku, which reaches 20,000 calories, I bought it years ago and only tried it but never used it ... one of these days ...
















Hoy mi hija Virginia, me envió un whatsapp, diciendome: Hey, yo tengo al compañero de La Luna: "La Noche" yo le respondí, En serio? no lo recuerdo, por favor envíame una foto. y aquí está La Noche, un cuenco que yo había olvidado.... pero no mi hija!

Today my daughter Virginia, sent me a whatsapp, telling me: Hey, I have the companion of La Luna: "The Night"   I replied her: Really? I do not remember, please send me a photo. and here is The Night, a bowl that I had forgotten....but not my daughter!

Yes, get started already! These are great and I want to see more and I want to have one, haha! I want to do that too but I don't have an oven. I recognize so much in what you say about getting bored, same over here ;-) Sometimes people find that difficult because they can't put a label on me and what I'm doing, don't you have that "problem"? But these little bowls are really wonderful!

Hi Roberto, good that you found them again, this little bowls are so cute that I would fell instantly in love with them and I would like to touch them and play around with them a littlebit.
I guess boredom is always a chance to go a bit further and broden the own horizon - so lets get bored and than create something new!

The moon bowls are very strong and sweet and mysterious. It's as if la noche gives the moon a big kiss and la luna is a bit confused about it! XXWW!!

Hey, Roberto the Discoverer! Didn't you feel like an archaeologist - finding treasures from past times?:D The feeling must have been great! These bowls are so nice! I like especially the moon and the fish ones. But, oh, the cat with birds bowl - it looks really anicent!
Aren't you inspired to work with clay again?:)))
