Blog Of The Month

Carole Epps' great blog Musing About Mud is one of my favourites. Hats of to her for her artist of the day feature that she ran all through April. I came across some fascinating work through that and am appreciative of being one of the artists showcased. I would like to acknowledge the great contribution Carole's blog makes to serving the ceramic community, and also, her own exceptional work which you can see on her blog and at her Etsy store

Tomorrow is a Long Time

I think one of the things that I so love about ceramics is that time when work is in the kiln. I have not produced anything new for a while having been busy making moulds as well as a setter for each of my forms that I am hoping will maintain the radial symmetry of the work in the high firing that the bone china endures.

Well......Tonight there is work in the kiln!

And it does not seem to make any difference how long I have been doing this, I am always so excited for tomorrow when I open the door.

PS I came across the term 'Paper Plaster Moulds' today in a blog I read. Evidently the moulds are much lighter and easier to store. Sounds too good to be true! If anyone could give me any more info on this I would truly appreciate it.

That's How the Light Gets In

This image shows the translucency of the work to far greater effect. I love the subtlety of this piece. Sadly though the base is cracked, but at least I can share the image here.
