Fly Free - Fired Plate by Dreamspirit Fly Free - Fired Plate by Dreamspirit
Completed on November 1, 2014

The final few months of 2014 were rough for many, myself included. Weeks after :iconcowandcheese: passed away, some of my family and friends gathered to celebrate my Birthday by painting ceramics. I wasn't sure exactly what I wanted to paint (and wasn't necessarily in the mood to create art), but I wanted it to be something with meaning to me. So, after some thought, I worked to painted a red tailed hawk flying free.  It seemed appropriate to me.

Glazing is always guesswork, because you never know how the colors will turn out until they are fired. I've slowly been getting the hang of layering the various glazes, though, and this plate ended up nearly as I'd imagined it. It's around 8 inches in diameter and was painted freehand.
