Phew! First car load of studio 'stuff' gone to the re-cycling/land fill. Now, what to do with stuff another potter might want?

Inspired by Yoshitaka Hasu's demo at the NC Potters Conference I am making a large sculpture for my garden ... sometimes you just have to go where inspiration leads you!

Just loaded, unloaded, re-loaded my little test kiln three times! Can you tell I am trying to jam in a last firing?

    That's impressive! Were you reloading to fire multiple times, or just rearranging to try and fit everything?

Still working, but now the garage is COLD! I am trimming the colored clay pots and trying to find a way to trim the insides to see the color results. The trimmings are gorgeous!

    I have put some images up in my gallery ... I am not a great thrower for sure but I was pleased to learn a lot about throwing colored clay. It was fun.

Currently in Seville, Spain seeing fabulous tiles on every wall and around every corner! If you want your artwork to last forever, fire it on a tile!
