walking with gypsy this morning it was a recognise the beautiful smells morning….her smells being grass and other puppies, mine turning out to be mainly honeysuckle and some Murraya ( mock orange blossom?) and star jasmine…. in the early morning air was just great!!
loving clouds at the moment …and headlands..always…boats…old boats, timbers and worn paint.. we had a phone call a few years ago and someone we knew said there was a broken timber boat in the low tide rockpool not too far away. so off with the ute and extra hands and bits of it came home…it had had a bit of a journey from the looks of it…. but it has featured in lots of my pieces and still there are pieces out behind the shed…waiting!
Throwing and throwing to build up stock
some copper landscape bowls from the kiln on saturday morning are soft and sort of suited the damp cloudy morning yesterday as I reassessed the results from last thursday’s firing.
a favourite bowl from the kiln this last weekend…cobalt dots on a soft satin white glaze as a change from my matt white glaze or dark cobalt washes.
I’m still gnashing my teeth and ggrrr ing over placement of images and rejigging this website…every time I think I have it, it slips away. it is such fun to play with but sooo irritating ….trying again !
well, green teapot anyway?!! have enjoyed making settings of bowls and spoons with a teapot on a lovely wooden tray purchased at the markets a little while ago…even snuck in a very small test pot with an experimental new copper glaze that is definitely needing a bigger batch test.
