swim little fishy

img_3073

have enjoyed painting on linen over the last 2 weeks, nice to fiddle with in that incredible hot weather. some fish swam away at the markets last weekend…and some more today heading to a new home further afield. Batik technique , indigo dye, fabric printing ink are used in various combinations oh, and also a bit of screen printing…..now back to some serious throwing of plates and bowls!!

blossom jar

img_2861had some results out of the ¬†kiln load last week that were pleasing….am enjoying using cobalt as a positive / negative ¬† surface, and the freedom of an almost watercolour treatment in applying the medium to the surface of the pot. it was the last firing of 2016 !! Roll on 2017 !!
