Unfired and Fired

Remember the Laura jar? Here is another lidded jar, a different shape but with the Laura aka Cosmos flower design. I’ve done a couple of sgraffito jars this morning, the slip was just at the right stage to make it a delight to draw  into.

From the recent photo shoot with Shannon Tofts, the large finger wipe and slip trail vase, do you remember it from it’s thrown stage? I’m really pleased with it. It looked great at Ceramics in the City with 5 stems of, er,. what was it? Heck me and my flower names don’t do very well together. I’m sure someone will enlighten me.

Freshly slip trailed jug, I’ve been looking at the old Verwood jugs again recently, very low rounded bellies. Lovely shapes they are, I need a bit more practise to be able to get that belly low enough and full enough.

Slip trail wood fired tyg. This one is about 15cm diameter. Proper toasty and nice too.

Second sgraffito jar of the day. This one with a birdie and a long winding flower.

I am a bit all over the place with the things I am making at the moment, one of this one two of those. I had such a solid batch of making making making and then the shows and now I need to calm down again and get back to it I suppose. These sgraffito jars might make it into a wood firing in Devon next week all being well.

    I love your work, Hannah. Sorry I couldn’t get out to Minnesota. I would have liked to meet you. Next time you visit, please come out to Seattle. Or perhaps fortune will smile upon me & I can get back to Scotland & England. Keep that beautiful work coming!

    Lovely work Hannah. I really like the 2nd sgraffito jar, look forward to seeing it finished. Do you use reference books for your drawing or sketch from life?
