Going for Gold....

I 've been busy editing photos of some of the pots from my last firing batch. I tend to mull over  the fired pots  for a couple of days then bubble-wrap them and carefully store them away. I tend to divide them into quality bands- the best -medium grade- and seconds (ebayers etc).

Anyway I just edited up this little gem. It has no buyers yet- nor an exhibition as yet to make an appearance in. He's quite happy in my small display case at home! Gold copper mattes are pretty rare in my experience - I used to get a lot in my early days- when I fired to a lower temperature. This was an attempt to try and re- achieve gold and it worked It also developed vivid copper red/pink/blue tones. It's a pretty rare piece. Take a good look - I doubt I'll get another one like it  - probably for another ten years!

New work off to Old Chapel Gallery...

I just spent the weekend parcelling up pots ready for shipping out. Some are off to the Old Chapel Gallery. This is a new venue  for me but it's set in lovely Herefordshire. Now fingers crossed I sell some pots! Some of the pieces sent out are pictured below.

You can check out the website here-

Making new pots 1

I'm busy in a making phase,
there's lots in the pipeline, but my main
focus is to get a decent body of work together. It's not always easy when the temperature in the work shop drops below zero! So it's been hard going, stopping the clay from freezing completely! it's toasty when the kiln's on mind you...

An Indian adventure

Well the dust has settled now and I can tell you about a lovely opportunity  to team up with Mumbai based company, CuroCarte. FoundedbyAnanya Birla, Curocarte aims to source work by artisans from around the world to showcase their talents in an online design/retail website. From what I gather it is mainly aimed at the emerging Indian market and all I can say is that I am "chuffed" with the link up.

I was visited by Pragya Awashthi whocame direct from Mumbai to my studio and workshop. I cannot praise Pragya enough and the founding principles of the company, the website is now live and you can judge for yourself.

I have to keep pinching myself that this actually just happened. Well back to reality, back to the workshed...
