Well, if you won't ship to the US, I'll have to visit and bring a spare suitcase.
Just realised you are in York Iona. My sister lives there. You must go and see Iona's lovely work Helen Osborne! Where do you sell Iona? Xx
Lovely work Iona! Xx

Last day ever at the @dcciceramicskills
What a ride it’s been. What a wonderful group of friends I’ve made and so many skills I’ve gained. I’m so glad to have been here and overjoyed we made it to the end!

Stoking the fast fire wood kiln, really enjoyed getting to grips with this handy little kiln over the last few weeks

Porcelain jars with textured lids. I was inspired by the patterns and ridges left in the sand when the tide goes out and wanted to make a dramatically ridged surface that glaze can pool in. These are the same glaze but in different parts of the wood kiln resulting in slightly different colour

This is one my centerpieces for my graduate show. It’s a wood fired textured platter holding a small wood fired porcelain bowl.

A view into the top of the wood kiln this morning.
So incredibly happy with the results and hoping we can repeat the same tomorrow.
Really looking forward to being able to share the rest!
Here we have some of the celadon blue porcelain pieces and a wavy Nuka glazed plate

This week is mainly glazing final work for the wood kilns. Here I’ve two types of glaze. The pink colored one is a blue celadon which has a small amount of iron hence the red color and the white is a transparent which will take on a grey colour in the wood kiln.
Really looking forward to seeing some results!

This firing went on a little bit longer than previously just to make sure we had a really even temp (also all the rain hadn’t helped!), but we ate chips whilst the cones went down and the kiln really did look fab in the dark! Hoping for an exciting kiln opening tomorrow!

Porcelain mug from my previous post glazed in a blue grey celadon and fired in a wood kiln. Still early days with this style but getting there. Think it needs to be bluer less grey.

Final pieces for @nationalmuseumofireland exhibition - “Inform”, hopefully opening January 2021!
These are based on a 17th century glass wine bottle that had aged to an iridescent patina. I’ve used that surface as the starting point for my glaze research.
These pieces have oxide slips and 4 different glazes applied by dipping and sponging. I’ve really enjoying making these!

Coming along nicely! Excited to see where these textures take me. I think all those lockdown days of walking on the beach rubbed off on me!

So happy to be back at The Ceramics Skills Course here in thomastown. Jumping straight back into this project I was working on when we left back in March- I’ll be focusing on glaze testing for the next month, looking a small subtleties in colour and texture for a sculptural piece. Excited!

Some results from the pit firing I did with @rosebeeceramics and @lydia_made_this. The wild clay didn’t react how I hoped it would unfortunately, but still interesting to try it. I got some lovely results on white stoneware pieces though,sprinkled with copper carbonate powder to create the pink patches. Excited to try it again soon!

WIP ardmore wild clay pinchpots, one with white slip inlay. These have been fired to 1000 degrees and hopefully will benefit from a smoke firing tomorrow with @lydia_made_this and @rosebeeceramics. Excited to see what they come out like!
