New (Bigger) Pots….and my first upcoming show!

January 15, 2015

So recently I’ve been trying to throw and make bigger pieces for my urns project. I’m making single and dual urns, and they need to be pretty big as a typical single urn holds around 3500 cubic cm!

I have been working up towards throwing bigger, but for now I have been making them in sections and then adding them together once they are leather hard. Here are the latest pieces…

I am really pleased with the outcomes and the forms that are coming through so far, and I if I keep working on my throwing and finishing skills, I’m sure I can produce some beautiful BIG urns soon!

I’m also still working on the forms and the surface patterns and here are two smaller ones that I’ve been experimenting with this week! The taller one i hope to test out in a naked Raku in a few weeks!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I have also been asked to have some of my work in a small show in a new Gallery in Brighton! The private view is only next weekend, on the 24th January! So not long to prepare but it will be an exciting opportunity to show some of my work. I will have a few of my scatter urns, some colourful test tiles and some hanging paper works too, so please feel free to come and see it! Here is a link to the event page on Facebook or contact me for more details. Photos from the show to follow!

    Looks as though you are getting really good at this pot throwing!
    My favourite is the bottom photo right urn, really nice details!

    Keep up the hard work and you will be onto to large ones in no time!
