It’s been a very busy week of glazing and firing.
Also, I started out doing the last week of Dionne’s Drawing for Textiles course but I broke all my felting needles, the textile techniques came to a halt so I went back to drawing. I really enjoyed the course and I have so many ideas to explore when I have time.
I’ve also glazed some of those beads from last week for my Etsy shop.
Seeing the weather forecast was going to be good for a few days I thought it was time to get some raku work fired. It’s been frosty but once the sun came up it was reasonably warm, which is good when you are standing around in the garden all day for 3 days.
Raku has a will of it’s own and can be fickle, some pots had to be refired but that’s ok, some cracked, but I get to keep those, and some blistered very badly so they went in the bin.
I love this one, but it’s cracked in the base so it’s mine.
This pot is a bit rough but I love it’s textures and colour so I get to keep it.
These raku bowls will be going off to the gallery, the first two are quite large, they have some lovely colours and textures
There are a lot more raku bowls heading off to the gallery for a spring event but I’ve packed them up before getting photos.
I could do with a rest today so I’m taking it easy reviewing my drawings, the more I look I find more interesting things to inspire me.
Enjoy your Sunday whatever you are doing.
