The rocks ... there is a long version of this story, but the short of it is that I always have some rocks with me and leave them behind to be found or not. I love these ideas ... an art installation that is always in motion and the idea of making something and walking away from it.

I like that satin wash. It adds depth to the color without being shiney.Nice work. What was that dark section on the left on the element that came out of the groove. looks like a glaze booger.Not nice.Marcia


No, just a discoloration. The element has been successfully squeezed back in by my patient husband while I was out somewhere ... Good move on his part as I would have been supervising and driving him crazy.

Chris there is a wonderfully uplifting book, well for me a Scot exiled in Australia, by a potter Lotte Glob. Her book tells the story of her floating stones, she has released them to the tides and Scottish lochs. I think you'd enjoy it.

"Floating Stones" Lotte Glob

Publisher Watermill books

ISBN 978- 0 -9554358- 1- 2

i too leave little things, discs of clay, even mugs and of course books, when I travel, wierd!

There is however the story of a benefactor leaving clothes etc in a park hoping to gift them to the needy, and a tidy soul coming along and putting them in the trash!

People wouldn't do that to our treasures, would they?

I have left some rocks in Australia ... in Sydney and beyond ....
For me, there is a wonderful freedom in leaving work to be found, moved, discarded or treasured.
I take inspiration from a potter whose name escapes me at the moment ... who builds whole little villages of extraordinary beauty then walks away. Fab!
