general buzz...

It seems I did a terrible job of documenting the opening for 'from the collection' @ Gallery 1855, hopefully my bud derek will come thru with some photos :P
It was a good night, although a mite stressful after looking after mum all day it was either a bout of gastro or food poisoning from a 'free lunch out' - free is never free..
Anyhoo there was a great turnout and the show looked good even if things had been a tad tweaked from when I left them.....hmmm slightly frustrating.
There were some very interesting chats with local artists and a general buzz about possibilities, so we shall see where the rest of 2013 takes us, ARTAG is a 2 year term and it's all very new, things could be great or they could be average only time will tell.







really course body..mm
So here's a little of what I've been up to, most things are bisqued now and a few efforts of throwing in between 'nursing' this week.
I'm currently working towards a body of work for Artist of the Month at MILAN ROUGE in Stirling. My make wish list is below and if I plan it right this week will be productive.



Some tiles in progress too all bisqued up..

And the usual run of lidded jars, beakers a few plates to try some printing on and the teapots waiting for glaze.


I think this list is going to keep me busy for this week or 2
plus the tagine plans need to be made I want to make some formers so that they are the same at wet weight and hopefully all the lids will fit each other, since they will be in a commercial kitchen it's kinda necessary. I'm still nutting out how I will make the guides or template for this, I have considered making a base mould but am concerned about the weight and already having some wrist issues this really needs some serious thought.
Sis and I headed out to a travel expo today gathering all sorts of holiday info for my birthday this year, it is a 'biggy' and a few ideas are brewing, hehehehee..
