tea party cups...

I'll be throwing my very own teaparty with these cups!!


This is take 2 of the monster cups the sliplines turned out great but i got quite a bit of movement with the clay and the post fired cups are now ovals not round... so here's take 2 with a different clay body and fingers crossed that the handles aren't too heavy.. and a few drawings from the wkd i'm slowly getting the hang of spending more time in the sketchbook again :))



Created with flickr slideshow from softsea.

  7. I'm so impressed with your drawing. Do yo ever incorporate this with your pottery? I'd love to see what you'd do carving through slips.

  8. ah jim, hopefully the cups work this time :P

    Hi Nick and welcome..my drawing goes a long way back to college days and i have my moments where I really get stuck into it...sometimes i draw with a ceramic pen, I have done drawing on tiles and may venture into that again...I quite like drawing straight into the slip with a pencil too
