A cool and rainy day...perfect for spending in the studio.
This is the scene out my kitchen window.
Andrew asked about my sprigs, so here's a photo. All but one are carved into bone dry, very fine, white stoneware and are then biscuit fired. The little seed pod, bottom left, is an impression of something Emily brought to the studio one day. Applying these takes a little care, and paper clay would make it much easier.
Gratuitous wet slip (slightly blurred) photo.
Slipped and decorated and inscribed on the bottom. I can't wait to fire this one!
A ten pound vase. I am making this size in two pieces...capping as MK would say...I wish I could throw a 10 pound pot in one shot. Cardew thought nothing of throwing 25 - 40 pound jars!!!
A 12 pound storage jar...I'll slip and comb this one soon. I'm combing more than ever.
A scene from the drive home. And check out the fantastic Wally Bird that Hannah has posted from her visit to the V & A!
