Lusterware & Oak Leaves
Here is a little still life I'm working on. This is the first time I've used Lusterware pottery in any artwork, but it won't be the last. The lighting on this set-up didn't highlight its iridescence very much, but even at this level, it's fun and challenging to capture.
I've always found this "duck" creamer to be a goofy looking item. Somehow, though, he seems to belong right here at the forefront of this piece, pulling together all of the colors behind him. I guess I'll never think of him as completely goofy again! (Maybe just a little bit goofy.)
