creamer


Here's a sneaky look at an unfinished creamer from today. That "batch" is now out of the kiln and ready to be glazed.
Other news: great weather today, Bristol was baking.

New Designers

Some news that I hadn't really announced yet on here is that I will be exhibiting at this years New Designers, in the One Year On section. I'm in part one, which is 1st - 4th July and I will be showing my latest distorted vessel work. I was there last year with my fellow graduates from Bath and enjoyed it very much, and it is exciting to be able to go back as an individual exhibitor.

Batch


This batch of functional work is currently in the kiln. It includes small creamers and simple espresso cups, as well as the usual mugs. I like photographing them at this stage as the throwing marks are clearly visible, my glazes tend to cover them up quite well, but still leave a hint as to what is underneath.

wednesday

Some photos of what I got up to today. A new jug design (this is the first one like this!) with quite a big handle. The most annoying thing is that I can't properly try it out until it's fired.




Using my new wedging bench. Richard made this by attaching a table top to the box of an old (empty) kiln. It works well.

throwing

Back to work now. I'm currently making a few pieces of functional work and I am experimenting with some new Ideas for my vessel work, which will be unveiled at New Designers - One Year On, in late June/early July. I like being busy, it seems to keep the ideas and my energy flowing.
