June kiln firing fun....

I've been firing up the Raku kiln again, trying to finish a batch of work bound for the Charlie B Gallery in Nevada, USA. It's finally done, I will be sending out about 10 pieces of wheel thrown Raku.

They've all got the overlapping poured glaze effect with a white crackle/ blue -copper glaze which forms interesting  "craters" or "pits" of copper blue in the overlap. It's gradually evolved and works pretty well on these pots, it  gives them a sense of unity. I've also gone for a trailed glaze effect on the white crackle which melts and runs. Anyhow I can finally "pass off" this batch of pots and get wrapping them up...

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.

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...
