It's been a busy quarter, offering Clay Play Workshops at Mosaic Village & Outdoor Market on the fourth Wednesday of every month along with their Mid Week Mini Market (for all your fresh produce needs)

First some slump mould platters and underglazes in January, then the 'Greenman' for your garden in February and finally a glorious wall hanging with sgraffito technique in either a fish or (f)owl for March.

It's been a lot a fun and we're looking forward to the next one, watch this space!

Modigliani inspired pot. Burnished earthenware 29 cm

Large plant pot, inspired by Modigliani. This is the story of the pot developing, from rough concept to nearly finished. It still needs a bit more burnishing, then single high firing and waxing. I really enjoyed researching the very short life and work of this prolific artist. A print of his portrait "Alice" hung in the hallway of my childhood home, and I've always been intrigued by his mysterious women

I'm making a few teapots again, aiming for the Perfect Pour. Sgraffito on coloured underglaze, white stoneware clay. I want to give it a black u/g wash and I'll post its progress. TBC

2 evenings of loadshedding (planned blackouts) means no Wi-Fi, no TV, no lights, but plenty of downloaded music and audio books. Add a gas lamp, headlamp and a few candles for ambience and 2 pots appear!

Terracotta Planters by Linda Ormond:

Underglazed and sgraffito, clear glaze to pop and protect the design.

This mistress keeps a watchful eye over The Atelier,
In balance and poise she has no peer.
She taste tests the paintbrush water too,
when she's not asleep in her igloo.

If you should find yourself Slow Roasted Coffee for a hot beverage and a slice of anything delicious, treat yourself or a friend to a hand built tea pot:

NB: Great for use at home during the current pandemic and adjusted level 2 system.

First successful Cone 5 firing in top-loading kiln. Bit scary as it has a low tech kiln-sitter to control the final temperature....no digital temperature readouts or programmable firing schedules!!!

December 2014 Potters Market - glorious weather and crowds of people. The Sedgefield potters had issued a "Teapot Challenge" and quite an array of eclectic teapots were displayed... Featured here are teapots by myself, Diana Young and Chris Smart.

Claymore Pots has been exhibiting at our twice yearly Potters' Market, which is held just after Christmas and at Easter at the famous Wild Oats Farmers Market in Sedgefield.

Had a very successful stall at the SABA mini-convention in George, 26 to 28 September 2014. Thanks to Mark van der Merwe of Bonsai and Brass Gallery in Sedgefield for inviting me. I now know the difference between a sh*to and a mame!!
