What’s on my worktable today

I have been working with clay this week, I’ve made some more succulent planters and ikebana bowls, it’s been so cool there is no fear of them drying too quickly. I made a large hosta platter but it’s probably going to be too big for my kiln. Why do I work large then ask questions later? I made a little birdy too, I think it’s a great tit, but will decide later when I work out how to colour it. I would usually work with overglaze enamels but I’m learning something new here so it could be underglazes or stains but that means test firing some samples. I would love to make some large sculptural pieces so this is my starting point, let’s hope it doesn’t explode in the kiln.
ceramics dryingI’m making a texture plate for a ceramics and glass pieces, but it all takes time so nothing I can show you yet, I think I’ve joined the ‘slow art movement’.

I’m heading off to the hills now, have a great day whatever you are doing
