Some of you may be aware of the 500 series published by Lark Books. The books cover a range of different topics, and one of those topics is ceramics. Some titles include 500 Pitchers, 500 Bowls, 500 Plates, etc. In the past I have been lucky enough to have been included in 500 Ceramic Sculptures and 500 Raku.
Lark have just put out an anniversary edition celebrating ten years of 500 books called The Best of 500 Ceramics – AND I have been included in it! For the statisticians out there that means that , for example, if they have put out ten books (it has been more, but not sure how many) and there are 500 images in each that is 5000 images to choose 500 from! And that’s on top the jurying for the original book. Again, for example in 500 Ceramic Sculptures 7000 ish entries were received.
So what art work made in in? Water Spiral : wheelthrown, burnished, pit fired and installed on bamboo.
