EWAA UK JAPAN ART AWARDS 2O12

The EWAA Art awards 2012 is fast approaching. This takes place in London' s Pall Mall at the prestigious La Galeria. The EWAA is a society which celebrates artistic ties between Japan and the UK. Anyone can join- and once a year they have an exhibition in either Japan or the UK. This is subject to a rather rigorous selection panel made up from members of arts bodies including the Royal College of Art and established artists from both countries.

This is the third year in sucession that I've had a Raku  work  selected.  last year I was very lucky to received  a commendation  from the Uk sculptor Michael Lyons. This was in the 3d sculpture category. Well awards or not it makes for a fascinating exhibition of art, craft and design and free sushi....

The dates are as follows....


23-27 Oct ....EWAA Finalists' Exhibition to be held at La Galleria (11:00am - 6:00pm)
                     Sat (27) opens 11:00am -12:30pm and close and clear the gallery

Some more Crater glaze test results

I've been blathering on about Crater and Lava Glaze recipes here and on Facebook too. I suddenly "got the bug" as well as a commission- (more on this later) so hence the rather manic activity testing out glazes and destroying kiln shelves in the process with runny, bubbling glazes.

I tested 2 recipes- after first trying the usual recipes from the internet and in various books. As I suspected - few of them gave satisfactory results- either it was "pilot error" or the glaze authors just happen to neglect to tell you that vital missing  ingredient, kiln temperature or soak time etc! (Know the type of thing?)

Anyway I resorted to testing 2 standard glaze recipes which I've had for years. A turquoise matte and a Lucy Rie white stoneware. The jury is still out on the turquoise variant- but the white is rather nice. A little suggestion from Potter Jan Lewin Cadogan http://www.janlewin-cadogancontemporaryceramics.co.uk/
put me right by suggesting to mix the glaze …

New work at Online Galleries part 1

Lots of new work is now up and online at #Artintheheart. This is a great site founded by Dawn Birch James, and has an eclectic mix of British arts and crafts. She's looking for new talent and especially Potters!

Have a look at my store for decorative Chawans and bowls.

Wobbly bowls

18 years a "potter" and only now can I really say that I can make a great,wobbly rimmed tea bowl!
They're rather fun to do and are achieved by pinching up clay between thumb and forefinger on three sides, then throwing on  and using the edge of a rib to incise patterns in the wet clay. Turning is a bit of a bugger afterwards, but they're getting there...
