Work in Motion

January 2, 2015

So far on this project, I have been behind (as usual) with uploading it. This is a new year and so I am hoping to get a bit better at keeping up to date.

I’ve been mostly experimenting with throwing bottle forms and trying to throw on a larger scale, in multiple sections to begin with.

This piece was coiled with a thrown top attached and incised with cobalt and clear earthenware glaze. It was then smoke fired. This piece was a test to see if I like the effect of the glaze and smoke firing. It needs a bit more work as it looks clunky, but I am going to be throwing these pieces soon, rather than handbuilding, which I find a bit tricky and time consuming to get right.

This piece was thrown in two pieces with a lid. It was spray glazed and then smoke fired and I am much happier with the way the glaze and the smoke effects have blended together. This form still needs a little refinement and needs to be much bigger, but I want to work on making beautiful forms that complement domestic spaces.
