After waiting for a month the rain finally stopped just long enough to get a raku firing done.
This batch of ceramic leaves have particularly good colours, don’t you think?
I hate keeping my customers waiting but hopefully they understand the slow nature of ceramics, especially when you have to wait for improvements in the weather to do a firing.
My ceramic leaves can solve a specific need in interior decor. Some of my customers send me photos of how they are using my leaf wall art on those awkward walls above a window, around an arch, above a doorway, up a staircase. I can’t show you photos of my customer’s homes but I can show you my leaf art installation which hangs on a narrow wall between two windows. I love the way it connects indoors with the outdoors.
I have added a few more leaves since that photo was taken. That’s the beauty of having a ceramic leaf art sculpture hanging on your wall, you can keep adding to it when you feel the need. I would love to make a large leaf art installation one day, I wonder which wall I could use, maybe up the staircase.
Some of my leaves are heading off to their new homes this week but there are still some available in my shop and I will be glazing more this weekend. I wonder how long I will have to wait for the next dry day to fire the next batch of leaves? Hopefully not too long.
If you look at KilnFiredArt on Instagram or Facebook you can see some videos which show how gorgeous the colours are and how they change in the light.
