Sunday

These pieces all found new homes. bittersweet, cause sometimes you want to keep them.
Got over it though and was able to say goodbye.

Porcelain bottle form, after


Porcelain bottle form before

lidded storage jar with incised texture

carved bellied vase

here are the three together. I enjoyed working on these
one of a series of bowls that looks at violence in society



This bowl was chattered inside and out. the form is beautiful. Can't wait to finish it with glaze



commissioned pieces. the simplicity of the form is exquisite

Enjoyed working on this too. Covered in black underglaze, the last step is the crawl glaze that will go over for the glaze fire.

Tuesday

Porcelain is back on the wheel as I prepare for and upcoming activity. Carving has been the order of the day here.
Two bottle forms, the first one carved with a paw paw (papaya) leaf, the inspiration for the carving. the second one is waiting to be trimmed then... who knows what will happen. ;)

Saturday Night Flow

 My great grandmother was a Carib queen. I met her only once when I was a child. Freaked me out! She was kind of scary looking.
Because of this connection I am always interested in the lives and markings of Indigenous Peoples of the Caribbean
Here is one of the pieces I am working on tonight.
12" tall bottle form, thrown on the wheel and carved, incised and slipped.
Feel free to comment.

Breaking is Harder than fixing

I am presently working on my final year exhibition pieces, which are vessels representing urns. The urns are cracked and broken In places and ash is spilling.
I am looking at the fact that we as a society have lost the blueprint and what is supposed to be  progress is actually a loss of sensitivity to the fact that people are dying violently and most of them are our children. People are alive but not living, the home is not a sanctuary, but a morgue.
What I have discovered, is that it is not easy, after you work to learn to make something 'properly', to make it broken.
Should I make them smaller? Straighter?
Comments will really be appreciated right about now.

We have lift off!

The bisque firing was a total success! We are on point. Here are just some of the pieces. Next... glaze firing
