Some of these pots that have just gone live on by website shop, a link to which can be found on my Instagram biography. It’s a small selection similar to what I posted last weekend—I hope you’ve got nimble fingers. The reason I only put so little up at a go is simply because it’s as much as I can handle at the moment, working another job as Lisa Hammond’s apprentice means I can’t dedicate all of my time to wrapping up pots. I quite like the model of putting out a little quite regularly, rather than releasing it all at once and having to commit to living beneath bubble wrap and boxes for a few days—it’s simply more manageable.
I’d like to say thanks to all those who commented yesterdays post, it’s always somewhat nerve-racking putting brand new work out there but the response was a little overwhelming. You’re a brilliant lot, really, it’s like having a giant team of people off whom you can bounce ideas. I can’t wait to share the finished pieces, I’ll hopefully get to fire them soon, alongside the pen rests, the final part to the palette sets that have been forever underway.
The pots included in todays update are a handful of mugs and beakers, a few pourers a rather unusual, frosty storage jar and two sets of carefully chosen vases, both open and enclosed. The weather has been so spectacular these past few days that photographing on my white table and background has been a nightmare. Every time the sun went in I rushed over to my camera to take a few pictures, the process took hours, as opposed to what could have been done in only thirty minutes.
It’s taken some adjusting getting used to making in this heat again too. I had become very accustom to gloomy wet weather and now it’s the opposite. My thinly thrown pots dry out in minutes, the rims taking on their off-white bone dry appearance as the sun flashes one side of them. I need to start paying more attention again, it's easy to get sidetracked in such a busy studio.
