Biscware awaiting glazing. The jug that WPA decorated is there in the middle with leaves and birdies on.
Marky Mark glazing his pots
And me doing mine
Some glazed pots. There are a few more to do in the morning, then MM and I will pack the kiln tomorrow evening, preheat overnight wth a gas burner and start firing with wood early on Saturday morning. There was talk on the local radio of the possibiliy of snow this weekend - I really hope it doesn't - does that make me a miseryguts?
PS Anon, I measured the 8lb jugs, they're 12" high
Looks like it will be a good kiln-load, Doug. Good luck with it.
mmm gorgeous stuff! ake sure you post some of mm's pieces after firing they look cool :)) you'll be nice and toasty by the kiln...
Hope the snow doesn't mess up your firing Doug. We had quite a lot this afternoon but it hasn't settled thank goodness. Snow is fine as long as you don't have to be anywhere else...I've got my first Open Studio tomorrow and Sunday, and the last thing I want is people not being able to get there!!
Pretty good lookin pots you have there! Good Fires
Good luck w. the packing and the firing. Hope it doesn't snow.
I have just discovered your blog and like it very much! The photographs are good, I can almost smell the mud.
Your style is sort of mix between modern and traditionally English ( B Leach), or am I mistaken?
Is that a stack of TILES I can see in a couple of those pics!!!!
Well as you'll gather from my most recent post, the blizzards never came thankfully and all seemed to go well - but then it always does seem to go well, so I'm not getting too excited about the outcome. I'll make sure I get some MM's on here Ang. Sonja, nice to 'meet' you. Yes, i'd say that describes my work well - I think what I make is very 'English', BL without the oriental twist I guess - I suppose I'm much more a disciple of Michael Cardew, who descended from Leach, but embraced the English slipware tradition much more than Leach did. Dave, they are indeed your tiles - if you'd like a sneaky preview and don't want to spoil the surprise, check here http://www.facebook.com/album.php?aid=244299&id=696677129&l=155d44bd86
Karen I hope the Open Studio goes with a swing
