I’ve been throwing and handling and slipping and trying to get through my list. After what feels like months of things just not happening finally it all feels good and it seems like things might actually be about to come together. For throwing the clay has been just right, the shapes have been apearing as if by magic, the slips are just smooth and lump free and flowing and because I have so many things to decorate I’m getting into it and it’s all just happening wonderfully. It feels great! These jugs like the one above are just 1lb and they are good fun. I made 10 of them and I really like them, might do some more.
Here’s one of the Doug Fitch influenced jugs. It’s got my new American friendly glaze on the inside which I completely forgot was clear and so leaves a rather weird white rim to the jug where it goes over the slip but I do have an iron stained version of the glaze so that’s ok. As long as I remember next time.
Oh and crazy dragons have come to town again.
The “Still Movement” exhibition is coming to a close this weekend, Saturday 24th September is the final day for seeing it at Gracefield Arts Centre in Dumfries. It would be lovely to show it somewhere else. If you know anywhere that you think it would suit or who you think might be interested to show it please let me know. I’ve still some more pictures from that to blog too.
