|ZIA pottery by Su D'Alessio|
Su says that she has doodled with pen and ink as long as she can remember. Several years ago she began exploring pottery and glazes about the same time she discovered Zentangle. She combined her love for both and developed a uniquely beautiful method of painting and glazing pottery - Su's Delicate Designs.
Su uses a squeeze bottle fitted with a very tiny, pin-sized steel pointed tip. She applies the glaze to her pottery using this squeeze bottle in the same way we use a Micron on a tile. Amazing.
Notice how detailed her work is - the little dish she is working on as well as the two finished pieces in the background.
If you look back at the photo of Su with her work (above) you can see the little turtles in the bottom left hand corner on a doily. Here is a close up of one, placed by a ruler for perspective. Look at the detail - beautiful!
Here are a few of her pieces that I purchased this year:
While she doesn't take orders, she does have one more show this year. If you are in the Orlando area on December 7, Su will be displaying and selling her wonderful work at The Orlando Pottery Festival.
Click here for details on the show.
Many thanks to you, Su, for sharing your talent and beautiful work. I think of you every time I fill my vase with flowers and teach a class ;)
