scratches and squiggles...


a few scratchings for some composites i'll be getting into for a local art show in a few months....

my runny copper ash will do the treatment and must do some tests adding some clay to my glaze it gets a bit carried away on movement down the pot!

and firing up the glaze kiln today thanks for reminding me i'll set a reminder on my phone to check it at midday.. our club kilns have a timer to start early in the morning but from there on in it's all manual turn her up to hi and keep driving down the road to check the temp.. I'm still not set with the firing times as it depends on the pack and the rate of climb hence my over fire last week on the bique i think it was 1060, i normally do a 970C for bisque....whoops! the glaze looked like it took ok and hopefully it's been absorbed into the surface of the clay ok...

I'm feeling like a play with the large forms and will get stuck in this week working around the tablerrr no.2, the final tiles are in this kiln.... happy week all...

  1. Great drawings. I like what you want to do with the circular handles and the cool lidded urn/jar. Loving the verticalness of the pieces :o)
