Out of hand

A while ago I promised to show you the results of my latest glaze firing. I’ve been so frantic preparing for Potfest that I’ve been somewhat sidetracked, trying to get as much made in the short amount of time I have before my first show. I’ve surprised myself in how much I have enjoyed the pressure and I feel my work is improving daily – possibly as a result. I’ve a lot to learn still but it’s a relief to know that I am continuing to love every minute of it. I’m just in the middle of a family holiday on the Outer Isles and my sketchbooks are brimming with new ideas… designs… decorations… shapes… I can’t wait to get back to the wheel. But first, more glazing and firings will need to be done in an attempt to finish a few last pieces before a week on Thursday when I head off to Penrith. Here are a few of my favorites from the last two firings…


Utensil jars


Dipping bowls and salt pot

Finally

I’ve been trying to finish my logo for months, but at last here it is. As a graphic designer I think I’m probably my most difficult client and I’ve been tinkering with it for ages. I wanted something that is simple, but expresses the organic nature of what I do.

Now I’ve just got to get business cards done for Potfest in the Pens
and photography…
price lists…
more throwing…
glazing…
firing.
