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.
