All A-Flutter

This earthenware lidded vessel feature hand-carved linocut stamp decorations inspired by Andy Warhol’s “Happy Butterfly Day” prints.  Stamped images are coloured with underglazes.  The caterpillar stamp is compliments of my daughter and adds an unexpected element to the design.

Warhol-inspired Linocut Butterflies

Warhol-inspired linocut stamp experimentation on greenware tiles and tumblers using black underglaze applied with a foam brush. My daughter added a caterpillar stamp to the mix! There is a hint of turquoise remaining from the ink pad which will fire off in the kiln leaving only black lines behind, though I quite like how it looks with the blue in the black. Will try to mimic that another time by applying two colours of underglaze to the stamp.WarholButterfliesTile_LinoButterfliesTumblers2_LinoButterflies
