I need to make mugs this week so I am thinking about how I will decorate them. The pictures show some mugs that I made some years ago that we use at home. I was never sure if I liked them and they took quite a long time to make by the time I had applied all those strips of clay. I am not going to pursue that idea but do some with sgraffito decoration. I threw a few on Tuesday to think about shapes and today I threw several more.
It's very cold here this week, fortunately all the pots have been O.K. The forecast tonight is for heavy frost so I have just come in from the studio as I've put a biscuit firing on. That will protect from frost and make the studio warm tomorrow. I'm surprised I could move today I had so many layers of clothes on!
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...
