New pots at Buckenham Galleries Southwold

It was time to visit Southwold again this weekend and a visit to  Buckenham Galleries, to resupply them with pots. This is a  lovely gallery showing Fine Arts, sculpture and painting- as well as ceramics, including pots by Robin Welch. I have  been dealing with them  since  2006/7 and it's always been a successful place to show and sell work.

It was nice to meet new people at the gallery, although much missed is Becky Munting, the former gallery manager- now focusing on her painting career. Her work can be seen here:

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 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.

Testing times...

Been messing around with a not quite Terra Sigilata slip. Well the juries out on this one. I saggar fired them to about 700 degrees c, I'm not expert but it was fun to try. Perhaps it's something I will persevere with . It's good to try something new even if they don't quite pan out. Interesting... but more work needed!

Looking forwards to raku firing properly soon! Lots to do and almost completely out of stock..so I better get a jiggy on.
