Ceramic sticks

  These were made from some sticks from Wimbledon Common, Jane’s  son whittled them down and she then made some moulds from them.  She used red and white clay and glazes which make them look like bronze.  Although initially skeptical about moulds Jane realises that they have a place in her portfolio.  This piece will…

Bill and Ben

Do you remember Bill and Ben the flower pot men.  These two are my version of them.

The family

These pieces are a family.  They were all made on the same day and have al been glazed using white as the base colour.  The leopard spot glaze is working well and I like the way the glazes overlap to make interesting colours.  These will be on show at Candid Arts, 3 – 5 Torrens…

The Fencer

This tiny piece is about 5 centimetres tall but is ready to fence.  I have used blue slip and then turquoise glaze over the top.

Small ecclesiastical pots

These pots have been thrown on the wheel and are part of the figurative pots project.  I have made a number of different glazes but am particularly pleased with the deep red which doesn’t normally happen in an electric kiln, a happy accident, as  is so often the case in pottery.
