I love lettering on pots and I am always looking for new phrases and meaningful sayings to add to my work. The one on the tyg below reads ‘Work for a cause not for applause, Live life to express not to impress’.
A detail of the slipware cradle. I can’t show you the whole thing as it’s recipient will have their surprise spoiled. I don’t make much in the way of slab built work so I am rather nervous about firing this as you can imagine.
This week involves more little plates, I am just so satisfied by the proportions of those, just a pound and a half of clay, small really but lovely to decorate. I want to have a good selection of them for Minnesota. Also some slightly larger baluster jugs, I hope to throw them tomorrow and I have a bundle of tiles to decorate and a couple of commissioned chargers to slip. Lets hope the sun keeps shining and encourages the work to happen and the slip to flow in smooth unlumpy beauty.
