Celebrating Art in the Garden 2

Its been a long hard slog getting here but I finally managed to get my work finished and ready to be photographed for Celebrating Art in the Garden. Well I say finished I am actually having to remake one piece due to tripping over the foot peddle on my wheel, setting it off full blast, with a piece I had literally just finished flying off in all directions! The moral of the story, don’t keep going when you’re tired. A lesson I will never learn and hey its only mud!

Here’s a few work in progress shots of MerNeith and the finished thing. MerNeith may have been the first female pharaoh and the earliest queen regent in recorded history and seemed a fitting name for such an elegant looking piece.

Into The Deep is another new piece. The steel sections were made by Tim from Cobbaton Combat Collection, they have been made to rust over time (on the outside, the inside is sealed to protect the metal). I love this shot that John Russel took in my friends stunning garden.

Clerkenwell Design Week

Now the work for  Delamore has been installed, this week I am concentrating on my new ‘spirits’ range which I am launching at CDW16. Today I really enjoyed glazing my new tray. You can see the colours look really pale before the heat of the kiln changes them, hopefully they will be a lovely royal blue and yellow when they are done. The tray is also very neat and round at the moment, I choose to use porcelain not just because it is white and very strong but also because it moves in the kiln giving a uniqueness to each piece which I love. Fingers crossed for a good firing this week.  Happy Monday, Taz
