kiln on early this morning…its been a long day and this afternoon hot gusty winds felt wrong with the studio being hot as well ….cooling off in the evening…will be nice to have the firing all closed down and sitting cosily til saturday….then the fun of glazing begins!!
nice full kiln load for bisque firing on thursday..bit behind schedule but thats how it goes sometimes. firing some small tests of drawing with oxides on commercially glazed tiles to find fusion point temperature…seems happy around 1000deg C…want to be sure before committing to the big kiln!! off to deliver a few pots tomorrow ..see a few people in town and then back into drying out the last bit of the bisque ready for thursday!!
in to Gosford Regional gallery on the weekend to have a look at the Merric and Arthur Boyd pots….like Merric’s use of landscape elements twisted around forms….but love the big tiles and platters of Arthur Boyd.
The slideshow showing next door in a small theatrette almost are clearer and more seductive than the real thing in the cases in the gallery!!
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
