Clay Creations

I thought I would share a few of my most recent clay creations in different stages of completion.  Below is a pitcher, an owl and a couple of organic sculptural pieces that I hand built.

I am currently debating whether to add texture to the vessel or whether to keep it simple . . . can't decide.

A few pieces that have had glaze applied.  It's always so difficult to predict what color they will turn out.

Then there's this spikey bowl that has been bisque fired and is now ready for glaze.  I can't decide what color I would like it to be.

What have you been up to lately?

Feathered Friends

My feathered friends are back . . . it makes me laugh how they dump most of the seed on the ground to get to the sunflower seeds.

Getting My Glaze On

With just ten days to go before I fly to the UK I've been trying to finish up all the ceramic projects I've been working on. 

It's so hard to stop creating and concentrate on glazing as clay is super addictive.

Above is a small hand built hare and below is a celtic plaque I've been working on.

Behind the celtic plaque is my first hand thrown bowl.  I can't tell you how excited I was when I created it.  The first thing I'd managed to make on the wheel that looked anywhere half decent.

I've also been making some owl plaques to hang on the wall.  Just waiting to see how the glazing turns out.

I turned my back for two seconds and then had a major 'OH-NO' moment when found Connor sitting amongst some of my newly glazed work.  Thankfully cat hair burns off when fired!

He's so inquisitive, loves to check out what's going on . . . and talking of what's going on, what's been happening in your neck of the woods?
