Gotta work fast on hot days!

On the way to my last bisque firing I lost my one neriage bowl. A bit disappointing and I thought nothing to pitch it, but then it niggled at me and I decided to make another. I'm amazed that it didn't take as long as what I had in my head. Probably because I had done it before.

This is the latest results from the bisque firing for my cone 6 stained clay for my sisters tableware. Everything survived this round. Keep your fingers crossed for round two.

This is the new neriage bowl and plate.

I have also decided to make some brooches or pendants with some of the of its because I loved the shapes and colours of the clay.

Some nice kiln fillers to brighten the day!

Now to do some glaze work and get some stuff done before Christmas!

It is amazing how such a hot day can have things dry in no time. I can't believe how hot it is today in Sydney.

It's all happening

Since moving my studio to the garage I have been able to get heaps of bowls made.

Even after a disastrous day where one of my plate moulds threw itself on the floor in protest. So a new mould was born!

Old mould then new mould below!

This is the end of a few days work. Pretty good considering I only get about 3 hours a day to do my own thing due to my cheeky monkey.

Hopefully there is a firing next week. Which reminds me I need to get some 06 cones.
