finished turning two pieces of fabric into cushions last night ready for the Avoca Markets…and one went to a new home ! now am drying out the studio and its contents after a very on again off again day of squalls of rain and wind ..and dry patches…luckily a surprising number of people about!! and clean up ready to glaze tomorrow
painting wall pieces and pieces to reconfigure into cushion covers…experimenting with different textures of fabric and overlaying of depths of colour. a fine muslin waxed and dyed, drawn on and then waxed and re-dyed builds an interesting surface.
fish are leaping off my linen onto clay surfaces…drawing with black underglaze colour…will pack bisque this afternoon and fire tomorrow. begin glazing on friday…wax resist and rubbing with cobalt oxide.
have been dyeing linen pieces in a new vat of indigo dye…phew its on the nose (literally) ….but the fabric doesn’t smell?!!
December 13, tomorrow is the day!!
Twilight Markets at Avoca Beach…5-9pm come and have a sticky…lots of shibori tea towels, colour fast, fun for christmas…pots…spoons..ladles.
