It's been lovely and warm the last few days..still a bit chilly first thing in the morning but I can't complain. Don't you find a good dose of sunshine really increases one's creativity and energy no end? I had a sudden creative spurt this week and I put it down to the sun causing endorphins to swirl around in my brain. Well, that's my theory, anyway.
A few of the things I'm working on at the moment:
|Large tea bowl in pink stoneware.|
|A bit of fun: "tortoise" coffee bowl|
|Texture experiment on two inch tall vase|
|Texture experiment on 4 inch vase|
|Yunomi 4.5 inches tall|
I like your experiments on textures. They look like rocks. Some Japanese use very coarse clay to get rough textures. Your tortoise bowl made me smile! : )ReplyDelete
Hi, thank you for your kind comment. I would like to fire these rough textured pots in a wood kiln, with plenty of wood ash. :)Delete
The pink stoneware tea bowl is a very lovely piece!ReplyDelete
Hi Maria, thank you so much! I hope I can fire it nicely.Delete
I love the look of natural clay, sweet turtle.ReplyDelete
Thank you, Linda, the turtle was one of those things that just happened on the spur of the moment. :) Me too, I often wish I could keep that look after firing.Delete
the tortoise coffee bowl---yes!ReplyDelete
and the pink stoneware tea bowl elegant, but earthy.....nice....
Thanks so much, Charlene. I had so many nice comments today, must be the sunshine effect. :)Delete
