It was a fairly good firing;
Just the odd dry edge and smudge of cobalt glaze. The bugger is practically invisible in it's raw state.
I feel quite sad now that I've said that might be the last firing for the year. Maybe I can squeeze out some more pots?!

my creative space

I'm glazing for possibly the last firing of the year. As much as I want to produce more work, I think I need to accept that it won't happen before the end of the year. A lot of these pots are relatively old - I made them back in July and abandoned them after a bisque firing because NOTHING matched. But they are good quality pots! So I reclaimed and feathered them :)
A few more of my slipcast birdies will go in this firing too.
I want to make this one into a pendant, hence the hole in his head...
More creative folk will be at Kootoyoo today!

my (sketchy) creative space

Oh dear. I haven't played My Creative Space for over a month! Not that there hasn't been any creating going on...a lot has been made, but only a little has been documented! So today I'll share my new pages for The Sketchbook Project. Although the book itself will be sent back to New York in January, I'm creating a digital version so I can (hopefully) develop the drawings into new designs for my pots next year. Yay!
Pages 18 & 19

Pages 20 & 21

You can see more pages here, here, here and here. And you can see more creative spaces here
with Kirsty!


Apologies for the quietness of late.
College is a bit awful, the weather has been nasty and there is little time for pots.
But here are some nice pot photos from Carmel.

six to thirteen

Look!  4 double page spreads of my sketchbook!  Back on target.  I'm still hoping for a double page per week.  Did I mention I'm hoping to send my sketchbook back to New York from Paris?!  Yep.  I'll be in Europe in January, eeeee! 
 Pages 6 & 7
 Pages 8 & 9
Pages 10 & 11
Pages 12 & 13

I'm not sure why I only painted one or two colours on each of these sketches.  It may be partly related to my slip cast lorikeets, as I only coloured a couple of sections on each of them.  I unintentionally drew the green feather next to the bird with green only sections on pages 10 & 11, but I like the idea.  I'm working from my friend' photographs, so I can zoom in to identify which feathers create each colour section.  I wonder how long these pretty birds will hold my attention?
