A preview of something new—call them one off pieces if you will. I’ve been making predominantly functional ceramics for the past three years, simple vases are about as decorative as I’ve got so far, these, on the other hand haven’t been made with function in mind. They serve simply as a vessel, a term that is often overlooked and thought of badly by many potters. Before I started making ceramics I thought my career might lead into graphic design of some kind, I certainly haven’t lost that interest. Graphic imagery and photography have become very much integral to my craft and means of promotion as of late. Something was lost in my work due to it’s simplicity in form and surface, a sense of ‘play’ and a means of creating marks and the answer is simple. It’s quite incredible what difference a discrete line can make. Not only does it create work that is more sculptural, but it opens up a whole new domain, combinations of lines, crossing, intersecting, parallel to one another, following the forms of the pots or contrasting against them. I’ve only made a handful of these and the process itself was enough to draw me completely in.

Firing and glazing these will create a vastly different object than what’s on show here. The idea with the sharp lines is to create regions for the glaze to break on and pool. Rims of pots coated with the darkest green often split on sharp edges to reveal glorious metallic browns and my white glaze cuts to a grey, almost black hue. I’m hoping these marks will encourage the same effect to happen. I’m yet to fire any, so time will tell and I’m feverishly excited, it’s new ground, finally.
I’ve had quite a formal training when it comes to pottery, and while making usable pots is something I love doing, this adds something else altogether. I don’t want to be a potter trapped making functional pots forever when there’s so much more to the craft than continually making utilitarian work. Spending an afternoon carefully creating these vessels was the most riveting and terrifying moment I’ve had in the pottery for months; and it was induced by a measly coil of clay.

It's #slaburday, and I could go for a couple fat stacks of sequentially matched slabs from @legacylumber like @jeffmackdesigns was looking at. Instead I'll settle for some small stacks of assorted wood as I continue to clean up the shop. Have a good one!

We built this custom credenza out of solid walnut and I'm pretty sure it weights about 400 pounds. This credenza features grain matched, soft close drawers and doors.

This explains why my allergies are so bad this spring: Oak tree pollen! I live in a grove of oaks and those worm like things on the truck bed are catkins (technically aments), or clusters of male flowers that produce pollen. Once they've released their pollen they fall off the tree, so this is a sign that allergy season is nearing completion. Willow and Birch trees also produce catkins.

What the heck, I can't resist one more pic of this table. Photo credit @ralexwilson

My @art_resin finally came in yesterday. Can't wait to give it a whirl on this little nugget soon 🎥⚡️

The backs of Japanese chisels the slight hollow in the centre enables us to get the very hard steel flat and so keep the edge sharp#workshop #woodwork #wooden #maker #making #makersmovement #furnitureschool #furnituremaker #chisels#

We have always had a particular fondness for this mysterious black-brown glaze that produces subtle differences in the colour gradient from batch to batch. Not only is it asthetically pleasing, but we love how space-saving these small pots are! We will be releasing more of these miniature pots in the coming days and they can be purchased at 3 for $20!

The Marowak Bone Club has been carved, seams filled, and covered in Modge Podge to seal. Ready for plasti-dip soon. I once did the Modge Podge stage without gloves, and contrary to looking like Elmer's glue it does not behave like it. Shit was stuck to my hands for several annoying days. LOL WEAR GLOVES.

Another short story ... A beautiful Sunday. A old man of 90 and his wife of 80 goes for a small walk in a small garden . See the new generation people with there children . They then sit down together on of the benches . They hold each other hand and say"s wish our children were with us . They look toward the sky and see a beautiful tree cover them . we are the child of lord " we care for the small love of the family".. never make someone feel alone ...#story #shortstory #natural #edits #maker #producerlife #tears #alone #assamese #oldage #tribute #shadow #feelings #care #caught #asia #instagram #indianphotography #sleep
