Lots of searching on the internet and several emails later I had tracked down a local supplier of granite worktops who were willing to cut and prepare offcuts.
I was very excited to collect my first two plinths of black granite yesterday and rushed home to sit my work on their new bases...
|Blue pod (burnished & smoked) on granite - h~13cm, l~16cm|
|Double Koru (burnished & smoked) on granite - h~16cm, w~16cm|
Hard to believe that nearly 4 months have past since my last post; it has not been a very productive few months as Christmas and home DIY took priority for a while. However, I am now getting back into my 'playing with clay' so time to add a few more photos of my recent efforts.
|Burnished and smoked hearts|
|Double koru and Yew - h~24cm, w~30cm|
|Green 'zebra' vase (burnished & smoked) - h~23cm, w~18cm|
Smoked pebble stacks on yew bases
The kiln is on again with a stoneware glaze firing and several pieces are at varying stages of production, so watch this space...
(Hopefully it will not be another 4 months before I update my blog.)
