Blue and White on a Cold Winter Night

-

As the temperatures dip toward freezing on what may likely be one of the last of this winter's cold nights I am reminded of a blue and white series I completed and have yet to share with you. This group of work is currently housed at Artisans International in Minden, Nevada. Although the patterns vary the pieces are all tied together by the color pallet of dense white, cobalt and powder blue. This series includes a 12" oval platter, 9 1/2" square sushi, a 6" stripped square sushi, a set of four square 5" sushi, two 3" square sushi, a 5" shallow bowl and a 6" cast bowl. These pieces do not have the shine one might typically expect of glass but rather a gentle sheen that reminds me of the look you get when the sun reflects off a new snow. Although it has been a long, long time since we have seen snow in San Antonio and we certainly won't be seeing any tonight.
