easter sunday

Well, the large blue crackle platters are all gone now, between me breaking one and selling the others, looks like i'll have to get stuck in to platter making again. Stirling Market was a great day again, the weather was great and the crowd arrived about 10.30am a little late for stirlingers i thought we were going to have a quiet day.....not!
The heat wave is finally over, yey! I'm off to finish glazing the last order today of the french prov. range, the kiln roof should be on tomorrow night, also yey! pics to follow later...

I think it's also time to show some table designs I've been working on, they're painted on brown paper with the design to be transferred to clay then cut into individual tiled shapes. The tables are 2M x .8M that visually flow horizontally left to right, the concept is based on an abstract expression of tuscan landscapes as requested by the client for his home entertainment area.

I was looking at images on the net and in the back of my head were Cezannes landscapes and the premise that landscapes forms can all be defined by the cylinder, the sphere, the cone.
Multiple designs have become overlapped introducing a contrast of visual ideas to add more interest and form to my original concept.


  1. Hi Ang
    The tables will be amazing. Lovely pots here too. Thanks for posting the kiln shots, it looks to be a good size, I bet you can't wait to get that one fired up. Cold and wet and horrible here.

  2. hey doug, thanks so much, appreciate the feedback..yeh I'll be happy when big momma is functioning again it's been a 4 year wait getting council approval on location, so finally we brought it inside and I'm also looking forward to making large scale work again.

  3. Cool, I look forward to seeing her breathing fire again.
