This is my notice board - if you look closely you can see my invitation to the private view of Doug's show at the Harlequin Gallery next week. I'm looking forward to that.
I took this bowl out of the kiln this week and thought I would share it with you as I showed it earlier as I was working on it.
These two jugs came out of the same firing. I am not sure if I like this shape as much as the jug below. The one below is the last left from a batch I made before Christmas and I think I prefer the taller freer shape where I have left some of the throwing lines. I like to have some of the brown clay showing through the slip even if it is just in small breaks. I haven't got to grips with taking photos yet but it gives some idea of the work out of this week's firing. Infact, because I teach some classes from my studio, I am firing my kiln 3 times a week at the moment.
Jim Malone - I love listening to potters articulating their motivations for making the work they make. This is a favorite interview/film made by Goldmark Gallery of Jim...
