Brand New Shiny Kiln

No, this is not my brand new shiny kiln. This is the old faithful, well maybe not so faithful... just old. It is a bit broken, but can be fixed. I'm giving it away to anyone who is willing to take it out of my studio... Send me an email if you are interested You will need 3phase power and an electrician to hook it up.

This is my shiny new kiln - it's it beautiful?!! Here's to many years of firing success!

Next weekend is the Perth Upmarket. I am in a state of making madness to get ready.
Here is a little sneak peak at some of the new brooches I have. They come in lots of patterns.

You can choose from a number of shapes. Featured here are the cat and flying dove.

I have also made nesting doves, tiny kissing doves and love hearts.

These little guys are my new teddy brooches. They come in red, pink and sea green. I have a new batch of my other children's buttons too.

Slip-casting Clay Classes

This term I ran three slip-casting workshops in my studio. It is almost the end of the classes, with one class ready to pick up their work and two classes glazing this week.

This is John's set of slip-cast bowls (I must confess John is my dad - I think he did beautiful job!).
Each person designed their own bowl, then made a plaster mould from the prototype. They then cast four bowls and used a different decoration technique on each one. Voila, a set of cute little bowls all the same, but different!
This term was certainly a family affair, Tuesday night Classes with my dad, sister and sister's boyfriend. Certainly lends for a bit of banter in the class :)
Above are my sister, Chelsea's lino-cut drink coasters.

One more photo of the Tuesday night bowls. I hope everyone had lots of fun! They certainly made some lovely bowls.
Should have photos of the the other night's bowls next week...
