Beecroft Art Gallery - new work on show!

The Beecroft  Art Gallery are running its annual Christmas exhibition from October the 6th to December 15th at Westcliff-on-sea, Southend.

Hashim Akib is showing his stunning paintings and these form the backbone of the exhibition.  I'm pleased to be back too with some new Raku work- including these little "Menhirs" - (based on standing stones) resplendent in mettallic Copper sheen finish. Very reasonably priced too!

Check out the Beecroft here:

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!

Anyway I resorted to testing 2 standard glaze recipes which I've had for years. A turquoise matte and a Lucy Rie white stoneware.

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.
