Kiln on and Glazing Anxiety Hits

It happens every time, i should be used to it by now 🙂

This firing is just a bisque to set the underglaze colours first which seems to work better, so there is’nt a huge investment in how they turn out its just a step in the process but there it is.

Decided not to hide in a cave under the duvet just yet and work towards the garden gallery on the 30th in Paeroa instead, should keep me out of trouble because i still have a lot to do.

Diane Parker Workshop Day Two

Really enjoyed, started with one thing in mind, as usual the the clay made up its own mind about where it wanted to go. What started out as one of Diane’s Ladies morphed into 2 separate sculptures which i love, next on my list is to make a complete one because they’re lovely the way they’re supposed to be.

What morphed it was that i did everything in the wrong order and wee bit slowly. Normal for me and i have learned to blame it on creativity :-). When i looked at it i just felt happy and that it would be the perfect figure to be (though a bit Picasso-esque).  Together, structured but not perfect, with all necessary parts, a little bit of character and strength despite the wobble, and free and open and uncomplicated within, the only thing missing was a tiny pot and saucer to keep the heart growing and it was perfect!
