Another happy day setting fire to things. This time at the Hive, Shipley. New techniques tried, some I had not heard of, and results I’m pleased with.
26 March 2019
Delighted to say I have been selected for the Hepworth Contemporary Ceramics Fair 4-5 May 2019! Come along if you fancy it. And there’s also an exhibition by the world renowned Magdalene Odundo: The Journey of Things at the same time.
And here’s a quick preview of some of my pots, straight out of the kiln, that will be on sale.
Is it wrong to be in love with a pot? So pleased with the outcomes of the first wood firing of the year. The object of desire is the blood red marked large bowl – I really was not expecting this on an oribe salvage to which I added wood ash on the rim (but may well try it again). I’m also pleased with the copper carbonate on smaller celadon bowls. Then there is the pure wood ash….
Lots of throwing and working on new shapes this month. Plus, I’ve been ‘laterally potty’ – making a video for Penny Withers’ exhibition ‘Scale’ on at Yorkshire Artspace Persistence Works until 24 March.
The last few pit fired pots from 2018 finally polished!
