Two and a half months into the ceramics class the first glaze firing happened and I saw the results of my experiments. Only about half of them were satisfying - oh, well!

My friend Georg from Denmark was here recently. He is a painter and naturally we talked shop. I complained that I had a hard time getting started, now, when my setup in the new house is perfect. He told me that to get going he gave himself the task of painting ten pictures like a series. I have taken the idea up in a series of ten drawings in pencil. I bought some very soft black pencils when I went to Costa Rica and there I made a drawing that is kind of a forerunner for the set. I have already posted that and recently the two first of the actual series, and here is the third.
