It has been a busy week....well that's an understatement!!!!
It started with a bit of raku....5 firings this week
not all great but some good bits
I wanted to create a group of work that would be affordable
along side the bigger more substantial works
in our exhibition in October (see below)
Most of my work is quite expensive
as it requires me to go and forage for materials
long hard hours of forming by hand,
weaving basketry, carving and embroidery.
hors d'oeuvre dishes, side salad bowls and condiment bowls
Some will be raku and some will be high fired in porcelain
with glass that I found in out back NSW melted in the bottoms
I have very sore hands today boo hoo
after throwing a bag of Keans Buff Raku and a bag of white raku
this clay is rough stuff!
But working with the porcelain afterwards was like velvet mmmmmm
Think I'll go put my feet up and have a glass of red.
Next week will be all about firing.
Go check out the Mud Colony to see what other potters are up to.
