MARY FISCHER

Dripping Springs, Texas

The focus of Mary's work is architecture, frequently inspired by her rural Texas heritage.  The buildings start as boxes.  Lids become roofs, feet and chimneys appear, etc.  She works from slabs and extruded pieces of clay.  Firing is done in an electric kiln.  Some pieces get a layer of white slip before bisque firing.  After the first firing, a copper wash is applied followed by another layer of slip.  Underglaze pencil and black mason stain are used to accent the edges.  Color is added in the form of stains, glaze, or colored slip, but used sparingly.  Images sometimes appear, using Mary's own photographs.
