Flashback to the concert in the summer!

It's almost time for the winter concert. Lots of new songs to learn and it's really coming together. If you'd like to see some of the concert have a look here.

Here is the plan and the start of the Mokuhanga wood printing, with
Elspeth Lamb at PULP studios in Glasgow.

In the end I used a different photo as inspiration for my prints this weekend.

Mexico City market taco stop.

I'm looking through holiday photos to find some inspiration for printing. I'll be doing a course this weekend.

Here's a holey stone I found at the Whales Tail, Uvita in Costa Rica.

It's been ages! I have a new home and now a new computer.
So here's a little blast from our jaunt to central America - these are Mexico City. More to follow.

Here's the shallow dish I made using string as a imprinted texture.

I really feel happy with this and made it quite quickly.
I'm not sure how I'll glaze it. There are so many beautiful colours but I also love the form and sometimes the glaze distracts from it.  
I've been posting a lot on Instagram which has meant fewer blog posts. 
A resolution is to post at least once a month here.

I've also started going to a ceramics studio twice a month.

Here's a deep pot I made. We started by using different textures on slabs and then built structures. I used some tubing on this. I have to be careful with the textures, I get carried away and push them in too deeply. This causes cracks in the clay. I'm quite happy with this pot. We'll see how it looks with the glazes on.

Happy 2017!

Here's a collage from November last year

Lots of circles.
