- out of the kiln this morning…whisky sherry saki port ? small thrown tumblers
- matt glaze inside and layering of my ‘moss’ glaze referencing my memories of
- landscape patterns
cobalt painted porcelain jars with different handles for a bit of fun,
for plants or wooden kitchen tools, brushes, blossom, or whatever.
Japonica down the bottom of the garden has decided to come out in bloom happily for my stoneware matt white glazed jar !!
stacked some stoneware bowls to make more room on the bench, walked past this morning and saw them differently…the continuing studio juxtapositioning of clay shapes tools texture and glazing.
Mini mark making on porcelain pieces turned into earings with handmade sterling silver ‘findings’ or hooks…working in a change of scale, alternating methods of working stimulate ideas and process.
Fave jar out of the kiln yesterday/ stoneware and copper glaze… love the edges of glaze that meet raw clay with an iron blush !!
my favourite time of year…autumn and cyclamen time…and planter jars !!!
last weeks firing of stoneware bowls …slightly different shape of tiny bowls (pips, olives, chilly sauce…) to fit around large bowls for maximum use of kiln shelf space…
musing while using cobalt washes on porcelain pieces about how to
maybe work with a flat surface, canvas or wood…with brushes and real paint…
so canvases of about a meter square have proved a liberating change of pace (while waiting for clay to dry )
