I watched the tornadoes that ravaged the south on April 27, 2011 in real time from the comfort of my chair here in Iowa. (I posted more about that experience here.) It’s heart wrenching to see the destruction afterwards. The image for this piece of art has been haunting me until I sat down and did it.

I had to have this cute little thing to put teabags in. It was plain white porcelain when I started. That’s the great thing about hearts. It’s easy to make something up without drawing something first.
More experiments in porcelain painting. It works like watercolor only better in some ways. You can work into the porcelain without it wearing down like paper. This must be the benefit of Clayboard. The tricky part is that the colors aren’t exactly the way they look after the piece is fired, but that’s some of the fun of it, too. The outside of the bowl is a pale green to match the leaf.
