the professor gets a new groove...





           
The professor has a new do!! So new chimney and all we tested the fella out at my seppeltsfield studio ;) and like a super trooper he went off!!! only kevin will get the abba reference just for him ;) ;) ;)  and i'll let the results speak for themselves. Awww purdy... I'll give the pots a good wash and polish tomorrow and check for refire possibilities. All in all a successful test run yesterday and not too windy and not too much wood consumed this time either.

Raku workshops are held frequently at my Seppeltsfield studio in the winter season. Keep an eye on my facebook page 'ang walford ceramics' for the next event... and subscribe to my channel here...

My Saturday class starts next month too so keep an eye out if you're in the barossa, south australia or just want a gettaway, it really is lovely out there at the mo...

#100mugs + studio seppeltsfield

Well it seemed like  a good idea at the time....
#100mugs in 100 days 'have fun says Kim' from tassie, if you're interested check out the facebook page 
I reckon I'm about half way in the making and some ideas developing in the process which was my plan... but you know if I get to the end of this project at least the work flow in itself has produced 100 mugs, so i'll be ready for mugs day this year with plenty to choose from!! 
That's in Stirling at MILAN ROUGE CCD


 slip too soon!!!! I slipped these fellas and watched the handles fall off one by one...bahahahahahaha, so I stopped dipping them!




And then there's other studio happenings. A photoshoot of my last gas firing with some lovely peach bloom looks, just a tad of saturday hilarity interviewing apprentices :P and some new tapas experiments lighty drawn and mostly lime ;)





and some more shino, you know it's my fav...

my new website...

How do people find where I am? It's a whole new ball game moving your studio and setting up external classes in a regional area. I've been working on this new website for a while and trying to find something that is both economical plus has a tidy design.

So it's a wix platform and was incredibly intuitive to use. The mobile version of the site looks good too, which is imperative these days. http://angelawalford.wix.com/ceramics

My class bookings will run from the website too, along with my shop link and link back to my ol faithful blog!! You can contact me via the weblink form or facebook message for all class enquiries and when the weather is kinder some raku workshops will be happening.

Shortly Seppeltsfield, where my studio is located will be promoting the JamFactory tenants workshops for the shorter taster sessions, running from 30mins to 1.5 hrs with anything from glass and leather, to clay and knife sessions.
