The last couple of firings have been remarkable in their details, stunning colours and shiny glaze responses along with tiny carbon spots just enough to make rime shots appealing. I read a comment recently on Euan Craigs website that talked about the warmth of sunsets being visable and recognizable in the colour of shino glazes. He’s not wrong there are many things to be seen in traditional glazes no matter how you fire them the surfaces are stunning. My glaze recipe is originally an american shino given to me by a canadian friend and it now has australian roots in its firing. I hope you enjoy this journey I’m on discovering a glaze and its possibilities for a lifetime.rim shot 1

 

Printmaking is also making a strong return to my work this year. With animalia themes combined with wallpaper images and the layering of glazes, they are very rich and bold surfaces. deco tiles

recent shino firing

This image is a set of small serving bowls inspired post US trip last April, amongst the Seagrove Potteries we toured were some stunning wood fired kilns and just awesome potters and their work places..

I came home all inspired and started adding copius amounts of grog to my recycled clay body which is an assortment of mid fire clay bodies some white some course grey and a small amount of iron bearing clay body thanks to the local terracotta clay.

My love of the Shino Glaze continues. I now have 3 different shino glazes and layering them is giving all kinds of lovely results.. there will be more images to follow from this photo shoot, shinos plus some lovely chuns and celedon glazed wares..

3 Seasons in One Day Wall Tiles

 

My 3 Seasons in One Day Wall Tiles deserved a reshoot. So today I got out the Photokit and prepped the kitchen space for a photoshoot

and with my handy assistant I didn’t need a boom stand for the softbox. I’m much happier with the results no flares on the top of the tiles

and a graduated background a nice side effect of the new softbox position.

 

These tiles are going in as a submission for 500 Prints on Clay Book Jurored by Paul Wandless..

3 seasons in one day exhibition

3 Seasons in One Day was a SALA exhibition held at Q Gallery in Woodside in the Adelaide Hills during August 2011 with Alison Arnold, Rose Maguire and Angela Walford .

‘ The latest work from this wonderful trio of ceramic artists celebrates life, the landscape and metamorphosis with feature pieces for walls.

In creating this series of panels, plates and tiles they celebrate the clay surface by drawing on their extensive repertoire of painting, printmaking and glazing techniques.  Each artist has a very different approach to decoration but they share a love of layering, collage and colour and the beautiful unexpected surprises that can only be achieved through the firing process. ‘
