web'n with weebly...

Playing still, coz it is still January the official playing around month!!! look Hannah's been doing it...Ron posted a brilliant one today... so go ahead play!!!


My latest effort is with Weebly my experimental page just because i can!

These pages will be devoted to experiments with recipes and step by steps successes and blunders..

I do love grid format and blogger simply wont let me play that way.... I need columns people!
you know drag and drop stuff.. the ability to change my layout more, so this is where it's at...
I'll still link everything to my blog so i'm not going
anywhere blogger is so well connected that way
and after all it is free :))

new year..new pots...


new year, new pots, new stamps and new handles...


 while contemplating my new clean studio space last week I took some time out to focus and make some new stamps.... while those guys are waiting to be fired I did a wee test run this wkd with some old stamps and new handle dyes...



 and some chattering tests... I have plans to hunt out a few flexi tools for the job.. I hear that old clock springs and even thin hacksaw blades a quite the thing...

beatrice is back...



 How apt my first post for 2012... Beatrice Wood the moma of dada... you know as an illustrator she makes a great ceramist. The medium totally changed her style, her original illustrative works from 'dada time' were incredibly light and even tentative but her ceramic work later in life has quite primitive roots and is so 'bold' by comparison.... I love this film production and luckily it's back on the tube for you so catch it while you can, she truly remains an inspiration..

And as for me I'm still chillin.... the sun is out we had our first heatwave for the year, my first and hopefully last migraine on NYE grr.. It really is time to recharge and chill out in the garden and at some point finish the studio clean out.
I played with making some clay stamps in the studio the other day and lucky me did a wee back injury house cleaning that'll 'learn me'... I'm contemplating a weekend in the studio, we'll see tomorrow if I can move more!
Anyhoo I have some thoughts for new work and also some catching up to do finishing pieces from last year and getting lots of inspiration right now so i'm just going to store it for studio moments. And new music for the year...the Gossip, the Kooks, Gotye and just caught Adele live at the Albert Hall video what a laugh :)) getting my studio groove on...
