The idea of ceramic paintings came to me when I've created self-made glazes dedicated for to cover sculptures. Sculpture does not always likes a shiny surface, so I've made half-matte, cristalic glazes. Then I've noticed, that they give beautiful painterly effects, and when are used at dark clay it looks even better. Combination of tiny flat relief and glaze looks very attractive and gives a nice matter feeling when you look at it.
