Caturday is for Printmaking

Caturday is for Printmaking

I am intensely curious and love learning new things, especially about art. This week, I took a class at Black Bird Arts on how to do photo lithography on clay. It was a simple process using toner copies, and oil based stains. I immortalized Lucy, Bean, and Vera (of course!) on my slab vase . These pictures show a little about the process and the printmaking on the unfired clay. Stay tuned for the results after the firing!
