New Ceramics page on my web site
I have set up a new web page for my ceramic work.
This warm spring weather allows clay to dry so I have re started the very satisfying coil built pots. The glaze colour has evolved from my seascape paintings. It was a subconsious evolution linking my sculpture to my oil painting. The blue splashed glaze application mimics the movement of the sea while figures on the lids have narrratives relating to myths and fairytales.
Included on the ceramic page is a selection of porcelain crystal fired baubles. It took me most of last summer to perfect the delicate shapes and fabulous crystal effects.
Also in the ceramics category are 'Table Platters' chunky strong stoneware fired pieces raised on feet with cork protection spots to protect polished surfaces. Suited to display fruit or candles on and I'm sure you will think of some other uses. Or just beautifuI on their own.
Potfest in the Pens is the first weekend in August and approaching fast. Lots to do, final firing and stand layout to plan. Very much looking forward to meeting up with the other makers that I have become friendly with over the several years that I have been exhibiting with at this great event.
A few days in the Cotswolds with my sketch book was inspiring, drifts of wild flowers in particular leave a lasting impression. It's such a nice time of year to paint!
