Making new pots part 2

The hard graft of making sculpture is now it's time to do some throwing. Tune in... turn off and are some results.

Making new pots part 1

Well I have just about finished making my latest batch of slab constructed work. I started in about August-it's now November! You just can't make them quick enough. I've got to start a bit of throwing now, and get the firings on the go- I hope before Christmas... I've already got a few customer enquiries for some pots so I suppose that's a good sign.

I hope if the pots fire succcesfully to hold some decent stock back with a view to generating a collection I can take to Craft shows in the coming year.

Setting up a short course on hand building with clay

Anyone in the Braintree, Essex area- fancy a New Year challenge? I'm setting up a new hand-building course focusing on all the basics...soft and hard slab work, coiling, pinch potting, clay modelling, simple figurative sculpture- basics of decoration....

Pass it on....
