Firing Results!

New pieces came out of the kiln yesterday!
Very pleased with the results, especially the white and black.
Although I'm happy with elements of the terracotta pieces, think I need to play around a bit with the slip application to get the best results. . .

First Firing of 2011!

My first firing in too many months went on today! There's a mixture of pieces in there, including my new work in terracotta body with black slip, so I'm excited to see the results!
Also been working on the small porcelain pieces today and experimenting in the spray booth, they won't be going in the kiln until later in the week, so have to wait and see how successful they are.

New work in progress for 2010/11! I'm experimenting with a broader range of slips and stronger contrasting colours in my work. Aiming to further excentuate the sharp profile and natural shadows of my work.
I am also developing smaller pure porcelain pieces, however although the work itself is going well, trying to juggle work and the studio is proving tricky.....
