... and bowls and small plates

 Lovely to be back at the wheel throwing again after the Christmas break.  More experiments

And Col came out to see what the fuss was about. 


He's a tough critic...

Recycled clay into cups

The recycled clay has been turned into some cups (and with 2 buckets of clay recycled I've got a lot of throwing ahead of me!!)

Have also been experimenting with some new types of decoration.  The dark body lends itself to a little light relief.

Recycling time

Lots of clay to recycle after all that throwing leading up to Christmas.  And a new collection of loose, Japanese inspired bowls and plates is on the way.

Salvage and Selvedge

Andria at Salvage and Selvedge has some of my little vases in her store.  They look pretty cute with  daisies in them.

Pop into their store on Johnston Street for some lovely handmade christmas gifts

Hot Whippet

 Collin was a little hot at Rose Street Market on Saturday, but still managed to strike a pose.

Firing Time

I've been throwing a bit the last couple of days.  Here's the kiln filled for a bisque.  Fire tonight, out tomorrow, glaze, back in the kiln Friday afternoon and then off to market Saturday!

Christmas really keeps me on my toes
