breathing a sigh of relief

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!)don't push my buttons dont_push_detail

sirens, satyrs, sinners and the occasional saint!

New work out of the fire and ready to deliver to Anthea Polson Art at Southport Marina tomorrow.  It is about a four hour round trip but absolutely worth the drive – the gallery is beautiful and full to the brim of stunning art work.

I am working on new series which includes some of the sirens but includes satyrs, sinners and the occasional saint! back in vintage machine drawers and other boxes.  The first images are guile
