Mother daughter project

This past summer I got a real slab roller for the first time in my working career. I have been doing many different projects, but one that I really enjoyed was my pendant project that I worked on with my daughter , Lily , over the summer. We found it so relaxing to carve the little tiles, and I really liked the freedom of choice we had for subject matter, anything we wanted!! I have added Lily to my etsy shop, but I think she is planning on starting her own store soon.  She has never had formal art training but seems to have absorbed something just growing up in this atmosphere. Her tiles are pictured below.

These were all done in the raw state by painting underglaze over the pendant and carving it away. As the tiles began to dry we experimented with other methods like brushing on the designs.
