porcelain earings with sterling silver handmade findings glazed with variations of my copper green glaze, and a new stoneware pair….love the variables of glazing (also hate them at times!!!)
the image doesn’t show the texture of this bowl…a rich satin surface, delicious to hold….water, pools, seaweed , watercolour, layers of loose brushmarks are the essence of these bowls.
these lovely old kilns are in Cessnock, the Hunter Valley….great that this part of our history still exists….that someone has developed around them and not bulldozed them as is often the case…
in the busyness of last week this quiet planter has crept up on me…with all the jostling for attention of all the pieces that came out of the kiln this one just waited til I was ready to notice him!! soft slow green hills misty tree clusters.
green landscape beaker out of the kiln this week….on a favourite little bolt and lump of wood that I can’t seem to throw away!
different response from cobalt over ironstone clay…more grey and muted…I love it !
Damp weather is slowing drying of thrown planters…from a rich Terra cotta when wet to a light rose colour when really dry….am warming the studio to dry off last pots ready for a bisque
