#47774 What Would You Like Santa To Bring?

Posted by Christine on 13 December 2013 - 12:13 PM

Thank you for this fun topic ..... I'm with Pres - I would LOVE more space - and I was going to mention more warmth .... maybe a wood-burner? but then I've just read the replies to the "Freezing" topic and it made me realise how very lucky I am to be where I am - so thanks for that too!


#47064 Keeping First Pieces

Posted by Christine on 04 December 2013 - 10:39 AM

My first "piece" was made forty years ago at my first adult pottery evening class ..... it was a pebble pot pig which I glazed with a glorious honey-coloured glaze with brown on top which gave a (sadly) unrepeatable but lovely finish!  It still graces my studio.  Thank you for this topic - it made me reminisce and gave me a nice feeling!


#17995 Take a look?

Please click on this and check it out Posted Image

A very pretty pot .... but I think it's let down a bit by the background on the photograph. Having spent such a lot of time and effort producing such a lovely piece, the photograph should enhance, or at least fairly represent it.

Can I suggest you have a look at http://digital-photo...sive-light-tent There are lots of other examples on the internet of making light tents as well as hints and tips on lighting etc.

I hope you don't mind my suggestions

Kind regards and the very best of luck with your endeavour


#13247 My work

Thank you so much for such a wonderful post. Your work is beautiful.

Regarding the working on glass - some time ago, I made a relief tile panel which I sculpted in one piece and tiled later and I covered my plywood panel with clingfilm. This worked a treat as it protected the wood and "shrank" with the clay panel which I dried Very Slowly under plastic

I love this forum and find it extremely informative, but you may also like to try http://www.heidimaiers.com/main.htm for a more sculpture-biased forum

Thanks again for sharing your lovely work
