not all black and white went through the same ordeal as the previous post – colour was overlaid in watery treatments much like watercolour. She is approx. 60 cm x 40 x 30 cm terracotta base, stains, engobe and underglazes
don’t push my buttons – came through the bisque but I was really unhappy with the result – I added more stain, more engobe and some very watery underglaze colours – put it back in the kiln and crossed my fingers. (maybe I prayed to the kiln god as well!) terracotta and white clays, stains , engobe and underglaze approx. 40 cm x 30 cm x 25 cm.
Great run yesterday down to the Gold Coast around 5 hours return journey. gravitas lost is a mixture of terracotta and white clay bodies, colour is stains, and engobe – once fired to 1100. 50 x 25 x 25 cm
Two more completed pieces a counterfeit obsession and falling from grace both pieces are ceramic sculpture, engobe, stains and underglaze in vintage sewing machine drawers.

The first images are guile the latter image […]
Sometimes documenting work before they go into the fire can be a useful practice. This piece had a little explosion and has suffered some facial damage and a missing shoulder/back section – but all is not lost and I have replaced the shoulder with a meccano structure and the damage echoes traces of life experience. This is a big heavy piece 80 x 40 x 30 cm – a mixture of terracotta and white clay. underglaze, stains – burnished. I […]
Spent the day installing new exhibition at Rosebed St. Gallery – here are some gallery shots – apologies for the reflections on the glass. My sculptures and David’s drawings work well together in this space.
