All the essentials are in...

After a few trips to my new studio all the essentials are in.
Big thanks to Kevin for his assistance and being general lifter and mover! So Tuesday was the first throwing session just to get into a groove in the new space and a mad minute at the end of the day… if you're on instagram no doubt you have already seen it ;)








Also fired my gas kiln on Monday and yet again burner issues but kept going and after 14 hours finally got to cone 10 with 1 main burner down. On inspection of the cooler atmosphere in my kiln it was a very even firing. A lot of these pieces were twice fired and no doubt this added to the glaze surface, very happy with this lot!

And if you are heading out to Seppeltsfield for this Barossa Gourmet Wkd drop by and say hi!
Turn off at Greenock off ramp off the A20, then right at the intersection directly to seppeltsfield.




Had some lovely results firing my rocket kiln for SALA all these raku bottles are at The Terrace on Glen Osmond Rd Eastwood.

A small amount of tweaking the firebox gave much faster firing responses, it reduces like mad, woohoo!!

Anyhoo hope to see you this wkd in the Barossa
