  • I've got some more opalescent aura starry gold moon cups coming your way 😉✨🌙✨💜
I've decided that I will post them to my Etsy shop tomorrow, Wednesday, Feb. 20th @ 6:00pm (mountain daylight time).
I will have 3 in purple ombre, 2 in pink (like the one featured in the giveaway in my previous post), 1 in light blue, 1 in light blue/creamy white ombre, 2 in dark blue drippy ombre, and 2 in dark gray (they kind of have a purple sheen with the pearl finish on them). They will be "first-come-first-served" 💜

  • Tried to think of something witty to say but honestly all I can think about is dinner so I’m just posting the pic and moving on 🤓 (I’ll have this new batch finished by the end of the month!!)

  • Had a bit of a kiln fail yesterday and had to rush mugs off to a friend’s studio to be fired so I can glaze and list them ASAP (no set date for that yet). Thankfully just seems to have been a fluke as the kiln was running fine this morning after testing the elements. In the mean time, I’m also working on new incense burners. 🙂

  • Thrown mug with a pulled handle, reduction fired to 1285ºc with a pale green glaze that pulls away from the rim to reveal the warmer tones of the clay iron rich clay body beneath. Flecked throughout with black dots, these are tiny lumps of iron that are drawn out from the glaze, which then melt into the numerous shades of green. (h91 mm x ø80 mm)

I like fluid glazes, those that run across the clays surface. Here the movement has resulted in a thicker band forming around the base, it wasn’t flowed beyond the line I glazed to but rather it has pooled just a few millimetres from the bottom, suspended in mid-flow almost. After all, glazes can be almost liquid like at the hottest point of the firing. When I look at the vessels through the spy-hole as temperatures rise beyond 1280ºc they are gleaming white, sticky with glaze. 
When I used to soda fire at Maze Hill Pottery, when it came to pulling out the glazed test rings from within with a long metal poker you could feel how sticky the molten glass was on them and even see it pulling away from the test pieces. I miss those moments, when the process of firing was so involved and you were so close to the ripping hot insides of the kiln.

It’s why I like these glazes in a way, although not fired in those particular kilns, they have a glassy depth, a variety of surface and show such movement that it reminds me of the process they’ve gone through to get to this final point.

  • Scar Stories 🎭 - These faces mean so much to me.
They are symbolic; and are originally inspired by my older brother's  mental health struggles; which has always been hard for me to talk about.
 So in a way this is my therapy. .

  • おととし、百貨店の店頭に立ったときのこと。茶道具の店にあった茶碗が小さくて驚いた。ごはん茶碗をひとまわり大きくしたぐらい。

思えば、いまや茶道人口の多くは女性に違いない。小さな手になじむ器があっていい。近年は屋外で気軽に抹茶を楽しむ人も少なくないとかで、持ち運びやすさもポイントかもしれない。

そんなことを考えながら、きょうは小さな茶碗を削りました。手取りの軽さにも気をつけて。

These last few days I felt the urge to try something different, so I gathered all my oil painting appurtenances and attempted a bit of painting(not showing my masterpieces on Instagram yet). The process was exceedingly pleasurable which made me wonder why I haven't painted since beginning my Art Foundation in 2006. And then I remembered that throughout my long studies (I did two years Foundation, three for BA and two for MA - could have been a doctor), I was adviced to let go of certain working methods and develop others. Painting as well as ceramics were among the ones I was urged to stop or just keep as hobbies. I ended up doing a lot of digital illustration as well as After Effects animation and getting fantastic feedback as well as a few awards. I totally understand that tutors are trying to help students (especially when it comes to Illustration) to be as employable as possible upon graduation. But now that I am left on my own, my digital projects are becoming less and less frequent and my tablet is carefully stored away while I use real pencils, brushes, pens and clay more and more. In a way I have some regrets. I have always been fascinated by the skill it takes to use actual physical art materials instead of Photoshop or Illustrator so I wish I never stopped. There is no zooming in and in, undo or ready made cool texture effects. At the moment, the work I was doing back in my BA feels a bit like a contrivance and my new work often seems to me a bit unskilled. I am excited though and willing to put the time to develop it, perhaps I will realise the benefit of my digital phase later on. To sum up and finish on a positive note, in my opinion the one incredibly important benefit Art School has to offer and for which I am very grateful for, is helping one develop their personal way of thinking and coming up with ideas through scrupulous examination of certain areas of interest 🔍💡🖍️Photo by @therealpannybrown

This Christmas I decided to focus on personal work so I will not be doing a studio sale. Lately I like to withdraw and focus on projects which seem to take time to evolve and reach a stage I am satisfied with. I do have some smaller pieces but for the first time I want them to stay with me for a little longer. These are my experiments for making larger pieces, so I want to look at them while creating new work. Personally I find that developing your own visual language and means of expression often does not go hand in hand with commercial work. For example in the illustration world having a style is of utmost importance. Yet I feel like this is a huge restriction for growing creatively. Doing the same style for every project is monotonous and there is not much room for making discoveries through errors when somebody is paying for your time. It seems to me that growth is not linear or time efficient but I will try and pursue this path for a bit and ignore the contents of my wallet 😬. For those asking about ceramic vases: this piece is the only one I have available at the moment through @_mintshop_  in South Kensington. It has been exhibited at Collect Fair last February in the Saatchi gallery in London. .
