Teaching Angels in a new clay

 

This time we used a white stoneware clay at earthenware temperatures to hold the white..not completely white though..has a yellow tinge. Still a very different look to the terracotta and okay for handbuilding. Will just need to review the scratch and slip technique, with a bit of TLC and some extra halos they will be fine.

Some great creative expressions going on with these ones too 🙂

It’s all about the heart Ladies

These new ones came out of the pottery club kiln last week, I was hoping the overall colour wouldn’t be too overpowering and I like the pale green 🙂

These were sparked off by a workshop with Diane Parker.  We were making raku figures with an internal structure for strength. I stopped at the structure and added a heart growing in a plant pot instead.

It still feels like all the important, meaningful things are already there. A strong feminine form that doesn’t need all the cosmetic pretty bits and fru fru, just the heart that will continue to grow with the right conditions. It’s all about the heart.
