Waiting Game

Well another day another firing (not really) I have a kiln of crystalline pieces to be opened tomorrow hopefully there will be something nice to show. I have a couple of test colours in also as well as the tried and true. I have managed to get a couple of pit (barrel) firings done with some good though not spectacular results, luckily as it has started raining here yet again. The actual pit was finally empty well for a couple of days. I have been working hard on some sculptural pieces and wall work which is not my usual field. Throwing functional ware is my favourite pastime, so this is making me use the grey matter who knows what may come out of this maybe something fantastic, maybe not.

Until next time, which will be soon if tomorrows results are good.

Crystalline Vase

Well finally a sale, this beautiful Crystalline Vase has a new home in Sydney, I think it's great that someone likes my work enough to want it in their home. I admit I was beginning to think that I was going to have to keep every one of them. People keep telling me they are beautiful but alas they are still at my house maybe this is the start of something bigger and better. I have been busy working on some wall pieces some of which are to be crystalline glazed, I see them exactly in my mind can't wait to see them on the wall. I have also just finished my first block of childrens workshops they went really well and the kids made some great stuff will post some photos when the pieces are fired. Maybe this will lead to some more work in this area which would be fantastic. Anyway off to the shed to fire the kiln and do some throwing for an order.

Till next time Wendy

A creative year ahead!

It is the start of a new year so I thought I would try something new, this is it.

So be patient with me I'll get the hang of it eventually, computers aren't my thing. Hopefully it won't get thrown out the window during the process.

Next week I start back at tafe part-time for a 3rd year of Ceramics, mostly for the knowledge that is around the institution. It will be great to get back amongst the energy and like minded people, hopefully it will get the creativity flowing again.

Until next time........
