These two pictures are of the work from my last kiln firing on Friday. Unfortunately I lost a tree dinner plate during firing otherwise there would be two complete tree sets. The three blue pasta bowls are following previous work which is inspired by the ocean waves near Tathra NSW. The tree dinnerware are what I see everyday up here in the mountains.
Just took these hanging ceramic planters out of the kiln this morning. It is a tin blue brush on glaze. I gave them two coats instead of three, so instead of blue bowls with brown edges, they are a rusty brown with blue splotches and look similar to the corrugated iron of my studio walls. I like them, they would look nice with grey blue succulents in them.
I haven’t been here for a while, as I took summer off making ceramics, and since starting again I have been flat chat trying to get some work done. We went away to Tathra this summer and I did some drawings of large waves crashing on the rocks. These have been some of the inspiration for some new work I am doing for an exhibition at Tent 29 at Chewton during the Castlemaine festival.
These don’t look that big in the photo but they were huge waves, and we were getting wet!
This is blue bottle or water bottle. I have also made some small cups, side plates and bowls.
