New large pots

I've gone back to making some coil-built large pots. This one below is based on the colours and textures I see at Wallaga Lake Inlet near Bermagui.

Here is the inlet - a wonderful place - site of my favourite bridge on the coast.

Here is the other side of that big pot

I made a set of new pots from the recent exhibition with Pamela Horsnell at Made Local. These three below are little square vases - you can see the hole in the top of the third one. They leave me a great canvas to work on. The white line is s feldspar-rick slip with pool soda in it to make it milky.

The smoky green in this one below is copper.

I also made series of tall vessels in the same tones.

New bottles and vessels

Here are some of the new bottles and bowls made over the holidays. I really enjoyed the shared and solo show that we had in Made Local late last year and I'm keen the have more of these this year.

I also experimented with some tiles

Back in business for 2016

After a successful Christmas pop-up and an exhibition of drawings by Peter Rush late last year, and a great month off on the farm at Bermagui, I'm ready to get back to making pots and collaborating with other makers in 2016. The shop looked really nice with Maggie's prints, Cath's fabrics and Sharyn's pots sitting alongside mine.

Here are some of the bottles I made for the pop-up.

I love the tones and textures in this rock wall at Coogee - I'm going to play with some of these on some larger works this year.
