porcelain tiles 15 x15 cm…painted with cobalt lines and washes…
coastal theme for a client.
stoneware cups out of last weeks firing…am enjoying the ‘stone-ness’ of the body and the way the white matt glaze works over it, satisfies a need for ‘earthiness’ visually apparent. my porcelain is fired to the same temperature, a different delishess ness !!
love a morning when its time to use my brushes and cobalt washes to paint some of my pieces!!!
plates and bowls out of the kiln on the weekend…am enjoying the stoneware clay body, colour and texture. the whole process of ceramics, of earth, clay, forming and firing processes, resulting in usable objects, never ceases to be a pleasure.
was a bit excited about the fresh cobalt and the batch of beakers just out of the kiln is quite dark in places….inky black blue…I love it !!
this little porcelain beaker washed with copper glaze out of the kiln yesterday morning just suits this refreshing morning. cooler, quieter, rain dripping off the eaves
between throwing a batch of big bowls some fish have been happening on linen….now finished and rinsed and out to dry…ready to go home with Judy tomorrow!!
