A few weeks ago I made this double opening black mountain vase for the upcoming ‘Stepping Up’ exhibition to be held in Canberra during the Australian Ceramics Association Ceramic Triennial. This was the first time I had used Clayworks stoneware terracotta and unfortunately a small crack appeared after its second firing. This shot is while it is still wet and unfired.
So I have started on another pot. This time in my usual white porcelain stoneware Clayworks JB3. The piece can be no bigger than 15cm x 15cm, so I hope it shrinks a bit, as it is 18cm high at the moment.
