  1. Thanks Babs - someone else obviously liked it too...it sold within a few days of being on display. It’s like meeting up with old friends being back on CAD!
  2. Thank you - it was all very experimental, but I did mix the glazes myself, so hopefully can reproduce the results when I fire my own raku kiln I think the tile is my favourite too Johnny.

    Haven’t been active on CAD for a long time - life just became very busy! Thought I’d create a new album of some recent work.

    Latest kiln opening - White earthenware with texture slabs and copper oxide and cobalt carbonate wash under transparent glaze. Fired to 1080oC.
  5. Haven’t visited CAD for a long time. Interestingly, everyone picks this bowl up and it gets lots of positive comments, but not sold! Have made a few in porcelain more recently, which I really love. Have tried to upload photo, not sure if it’s there yet.

    Realise I forgot to post fired pictures - both these were successful and given away to admiring friends! More in the planning stage.

    What's this gorgeous glaze? I love it. Is it bought or have you mixed it yourself?
  8. Yes that's about it Roberta. Stencils with the motif being the negative part (the holes). This one was actually some flower wrapping paper that was holey all over and I cut small pieces, laid them around the bowl, cut small pieces of tissue transfer paper, laid on top, sprayed lightly with water, rubbed them gently with a rubber tipped tool, left to dry then peeled off and removed the stencil. The creamer stencil I made myself on a Silhouette stencil machine, cut from thin plastic film (thin filing wallets) as it's flexible enough for the curves. Same process. Lots of potential and given the

    Various white earthenware pieces with transparent glaze fired to 1100oC.
  10. Glaze firing on - mostly transparent over oxides and tissue transfers with my v reliable glossy glaze. On the shelf is a batch of stoneware pieces from a throwing workshop I attended - after 2 failed stoneware glaze firings I'm very reluctant to get on with these. Have tweaked the glaze and will do just one test piece before sacrificingthe rest to the kiln gods

      Will post pics in the morning when I unload.

      That's a very good question Roberta - it crawled horribly on various pieces. I THINK I'd thinned it too much with water, when someone suggested it should be thin (after a precious disaster!). Now, I've drawn off the excess water and will be programming a slow cool. Problem is getting enough stoneware together to fill the kiln and having the right pieces for a different glaze to accompany my test piece.

      That was - 'previous' disaster - though the work was of course 'precious' !!!!

      Pictures in my gallery. Quite pleased - some glaze a bit thin and oxides on the pale side. I was trying not to overload either! Cobalt transfers on the creamers have run a little at this temp, so will fire lower next time. Full speed ahead for the rest of the wedding favours, now I know the glaze will work.

      Current firing is white earthenware - didn't make that clear! I too am no lover of glazing - after various disasters!

  12. Visiting Kingsbridge Devon this weekend any UK potters nearby up for a visit?

      HaHa! Joel - with a 5 hr drive in the opposite direction - I think not! You still working from home? Got a shed in the garden?

    Thanks Min - will post again once glazed and fired. Think I need to be a bit careful with this one, as my original image was based on an Orla Kiely print!
