I draw on ceramic with black underglaze. The process takes between 4-6 hours on average. After the drawing is completed, a color wash is applied, glazed, and fired in the kiln.
The final image is The Fool, the first card of the tarot. It is labeled number 0 and can represent new beginnings, a new voyage, the start of an adventure where one may lead with his heart instead of his head. Sometimes it can represent naïveté and not looking before one leaps. The companion piece to this drawing will be the Death card, which symbolizes the end of a journey or cycle.
