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.
