Jennie Blue - Tea Towels
Jennie Blue has always been drawn to graphite and pen and ink sketches, those quick studies that precede finished work.
It is those sketches that are the inspiration for this work. Some of the images are original, some have been borrowed from vintage images collected at book sales and auctions.
I use underglaze on bisque (unglazed ceramic), in a method similar to those pen and ink sketches, adding water to the glaze to create washes, and a fine brush to create the effect of pencil drawings.
Each is individually rendered, so each has its own personality and marks that are the hallmark of hand decorated objects.
The tea towels images are from my original illustrations printed here in Maine using eco-friendly water-based inks. 100 % cotton, machine wash and dry.
They are approximately 28 inches square.
