Thinking

Testing of clay bodies has been completed with one type (25) proving most consistent results.  

The next stage of my project involves creating pieces robust enough to withstand the wood kiln (flat and vertical) and achieve effective (and interesting) results.  

The gallery space also needs preparing, so there is much multi-tasking underway. Vanessa is also having an exhibition shortly before mine so we are working together which helps. 

The Ceramics Market is now over and has been very successful this year. Lots of visitors dropping into the studio too, so we never quite know who’s going to appear. 

Ceramic artist, Chitaru Kawasaki came to the space and met me and the other artists which was a pleasure.

Still enjoying memories from Sunday night at the fireworks and drumming event in town!

 No.25 - textured clay with oxide content proving consistent.
