plates in progress
I am in the midst of glaze firing these plates now and keeping my finger crossed that everything goes well. This image is the start on 20 fern dinner plates. 8 of them will go to a couple who ordered them in the summer and the rest will be part of a great dinner party. I really want to have a dinner/lunch using an entire set of my pots and photograph it with the recipes of the dishes we ate. I think it will be fun and beautiful.
I was recently out in Western Canada visiting family & friends. We stopped for the night at my aunt stephs place and i got to see a large selection of pots that i have made over the years. This platter was a special one that ended up in the kiln at least 5 times. I made it my first day of my production pottery class with Joan Bruneau at NSCAD.
After replacing the coils on my kiln, I'm just in the process of firing some new pots for the upcoming Cabbagetown Art & Crafts Show. It is happening this friday - sunday. If you are in Toronto and want to come hang in Riverdale park....please come visit.
TIMES: Friday - September 11th 1:00pm - 6pm
Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th 10am-6pm
LOCATION: Riverdale Park, Toronto
metled pot takes 2 tumblers and a bowl down with it.
I must start making better notes when experimenting with different clays. I made this candle house this past winter......thinking because I spent so long on it that I could not possibly forget the type of clay I used. WRONG! This is what happens when you fire earthenware to cone 6.
