The current ceramic project focus is on tiles. Though I love surface work, I have never manipulated ceramic material in quite this fashion. Here is a bit of inspiring visual research.
What I enjoy about this piece is that though it is capturing something every day, it is valued. The subject matter might be boring to some, but the representation is fantastic! This is definitely not a realistic image of a cat, but this artist depicts a familiar feline in an interesting manner. They attempt to create the texture of the fur and other patterning on the coat. Its delightful in its simplicity. The straightforward text is a plus to me, but I, personally, like the incorporation of words and phrases in works. It probably extends from my love of graphic novels and advertising. The checkered pattern of the floor is the cherry on top. Its exactly what a kitchen floor ought to look like.
