At Creative Cottage Ceramics in Dayton Ohio, the serious ceramic artists gather around the Microsun Solis crafting lamp to do their painting. Its true full spectrum light eases eye strain and allows people like Sherry Kurtz to work longer and enjoy her craft.

Sherry has been painting greenware for over thirty years. Her goal is to paint her projects to look as close to real as possible. She uses a lot of dry brush technique to bring out the details and create that faux fantastic feel to her projects.

She’s using a Microsun Solis with its swing arm extended over her workspace.
