My friend Antra gave me this lovely bouquet, which has been brightening my studio for the last few days, and making me very happy.
These are a pieces I made during my residency at GBP last year. They were fired over the months that I was gone, so I got to come back to new/old work.
I apologize for the poor image quality- these were taken with my phone, which I am using until I get the battery for my camera. I really like the way that the clay surface is submerged by the glaze flowing down the right hand side- like a curtain of heavy rain on a window, or a waterfall. I wanted to show these pieces because looking at and thinking about them has inspired a new series of pieces, which I will show in process this week.
Earlier last week, I helped Ray fire his large car kiln ("Carla"). It takes a lot of wood to get this puppy to 1300 degrees celsius. Also, I am extremely proud that I am starting to know some temperatures in celsius. For the first two months I was here, I was lost when anyone talked about temperatures, which is very hard for a ceramicist.
In conclusion, a sunset skyline view from my balcony.
