Step by Step Porcelain Flower PotsĀ 

I’ve started making sets of porcelain flower pots with saucers recently. Here’s a set of pictures documenting the process from balls of clay through to kiln ready. Click the pictures to view them as a gallery with captions briefly explaining each step.

The group below are being made right now and are waiting in line to be fired. The kiln will be firing up later this week hopefully …

 

Here’s a few I planted up in a batch I made earlier this year …

A Technique for Incised Lines in Porcelain

The most popular decorative design for my ceramics seems to be the incised lines in porcelain. So I thought I’d document the technique here in pictures. Click the pictures to view them as a gallery with captions briefly explaining each step.

The group below are being made right now and are waiting to be fired.

And here’s a few that I finished previously. They have been bisc fired then glaze fired and are now available from my online shop.

On The Map, in Sunbury

This morning we visited the Sunbury Embroidery Gallery with the family Mudge; Bill, Gina and Harriet. Bill is currently part of an exhibition there called On The Map, organised by Alban Low. A fantastic concept where a variety of artists have created maps with a difference. It’s a beautiful gallery, in a beautiful place. There’s a few snaps from it below. 

Notice the fox in the bottom right corner of Bill’s bright photo of a car (part of the photography from his ‘Wandling’ map) – that wasn’t staged – it just happened in the moment!
