There are several members of the Budleigh Admiration Society. Here's why we admire him:
Each year the galleries ask for new ideas. I am not very good at this so, well before the new year starts, I have come up with a volcanic glaze and a new technique for me. It is so much fun!!
A new lasagne bowl is coming through, smaller than the old one, decorated this time.
A new transparent glaze that will react with a new blue glaze.
This is the result of numerous tests, each firing since last September.
Happy Christmas to all who read my blog!
This summer I asked my local joiners Roussel and Moore if they would make my version of this wheel.
I gave them a few measurements specially for me and my way of working, and a very sketchy photograph.
Three months later they delivered my wheel.
Christmas is over for me in the workshop. Now I must look forward to planning my Easter shows. New pots, new glazes.
At the moment I have enough time to try to get it all to work!
