Pottery Workshop Sculptures

Just went to another fabulous workshop at the pottery club this weekend. Handbuilding animals with Fiona Tunnicliffe. It was such a pleasure (though a bit daunting) to watch an experienced potter working on pieces when they are in the zone!

Day One was inspired by my Baxter Baby, i thought it was time he had another dog to keep him company, so this was the perfect chance, and with a lot of help he even looks like a Beagle! Then again i might be biased 🙂

Day Two we were lucky enough to have the company of the most georgous chihuahua, very handy indeed when a few of us were sculpting dogs, to have a live model. Attached the head and beautiful floppy beagle ears and then got inspired to make a pig to keep Baxter and the chooks company, but i am reserving judgement on my effort there.

Almost finished the sculpting part, here is Grumpy Piglet.

Glazing Fun



Checking the glaze thickness before I start out.


Here is one of the large chooks going through its transformation.

Glazing the wheel thrown bowls, pierced pedestal bowl and hand formed plates.


Watermarks? What do you think?

Why, you may be wondering?

I stumbled across a website the other day that was selling my pottery blog photos as posters OMG, needless to say it freaked me out so I put a copyright banner on the side and playing around with some new ideas.

The chook was a DIY one that looks a bit naff so maybe the second one. What do you think about them? Do they help? What do you do?
