This is the inspiration photograph taken while snorkeling. The splash of colors in a blue world is always exciting. I intend to try to capture some of these colors in the glazing process.

I have decided to have a WIP(work in progress) blog. I will be sharing the progress of some of my work. This Humuhumunukunukuapua'a will be my first. The clay I used is ceramic arctic white with armature. Now in the drying stage ( nice and slow) NO cracks please. the wax on the tips, is to protect the clay and slow down the drying process on the elements that could dry too fast. I will be posting my photo inspiration for this little fish. The Hawaiian State Fish, they are a bright dash of color in an otherwise monochromatic world.

You must check out this film.
“Diviner than the dolphin is nothing yet created, for indeed they were aforetime men and lived in cities along with mortals, but by the devising of Dionysus they exchanged the land for the sea and put on the form of fishes.”~ Oppian, Greek Writer, 200 B.C.
NA NAI'A Legend of The Dolphins tells a tale of legendary proportions, portraying the strange, spectacular destiny of these powerful and emotionally involving characters; a tale rich in beauty, courage, humor, mystery, and messages to humanity.
