I can't wait to see it all finished. About 400 tiles in bright glossy colours.
The ones above are national sports and the ones below are national musical instruments and dance.
I get all methodical and production line in my work habits; sorting the bowls into sizes, making sure I glazed every bowl properly and cleaning up the external surface of each bowl.
This photo of the loaded kiln was from last week; you can see the vase for the CAAWA selective exhibition at the back.
It gets quite repetitive and so I like to listen to the radio while I work. I go through phases as to what I listen to. At the moment it is Triple J. The last couple of months it was Classical ABC (a little odd for me, but it created a nice space to concentrate in).
This last photo is of my latest experiment. I am planning on designing new moulds to create pieces I can decorate with my handmade tissue transfers. This bowl is unfired, so the test will be when I open my kiln on Saturday afternoon. Hopefully I will have a whole new line of work for the Christmas markets.
