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.
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.
