Cape Cod, Artist Challenge


Cape Cod is the theme of the Dedham Square Artist Guild's first Artist Challenge. The reception is Thursday, October 18th at 553 High Street in Dedham Square from 6-8 PM.


This is my submission in it's "green" state.  The clay color is white and the slip is grey (but really blue).  The image is of a sandy beach, the tide rolling in, the shells visible under the clear Cape Cod water.

Adding the right glaze makes the final piece come alive!

Join me and the 28 Dedham Square Artist Guild Members for our reception on Thursday.
