Never get bored of releasing a mold! This is a #slipcast tin of #ortizsardines, the original kindly donated by @kateseaside all the way from Antigua , and is forming the basis of some new work about #migration and #climate . The slip cast #porcelain will be hand finished and then fired to around 1200degrees before being glazed. .

Mold making today to test bed some new ideas for future work, feels good to be making again after a busy period of just working! There is a difference! .

This last month I have mainly been obsessed with Staffordshire pottery especially early 19th Century figurines, the story behind these pieces and the audience they were intended for breaks things down to a form of mass communication much like Instagram or Twitter , concerned with the stories, headlines and sensationalism of the day , they painted a true picture of a society of 200 years ago ....more to follow ....#exciting

Applying finishing touches to this private commissioned work from my #inservice project. The lady who this is for has traced family members to this conflict and asked if I would produce a limited edition plate as a gift ! Really enjoying re-visiting this project , took a few goes to get my eye back in for the banding, but such an enjoyable process. Now to check if the glaze is frozen or not ? .

Great day yesterday @britishmuseum on a research mission for an upcoming project with @mdp_info . A first visit for me and my camera took a bashing. Too many amazing things to see.

Teapots glazed and ready to be fired, was really nice to get back into the studio and back to making today after a much needed moratorium. But you cant beat the feeling of creating and then firing up the kiln.
The celadon look is with the glaze before firing once fired it will be transparent rich and glossy. It’s so true that the actual act of Making feeds the fire , for weeks I’ve been thinking about what to make and how to go about it but it’s actually through making that the ideas come and the process follows....
