It has been a busy couple of weeks in the studio with a few custom orders from my ETSY shop, a local restaurant and a family member – plus I have had lots of kiln firing jobs from a local school, a local artist and the works created during the Scotsburn bushfire recovery art project, not to mention my normal firing schedule for classes and my own work! So it has been a busy few weeks.
Today in the studio I loaded the kiln for firing tomorrow, and turned a set of cups and saucers, and attached handles, for a local restaurant.
Here’s a video of me turning a cup, followed by pics of the making process.
Although I didn’t make the champagne flues and mortar and pestles today, they are on my Sunday drying bench, so here’s a pic of them too….
The champagne flutes are a custom order from my ETSY shop – some are spares which will be listed in my shop after firing. Same with the mortar and pestles. Whenever I get orders I always make extras just to be on the safe side.
Well, that’s about it for this Sunday studio visit – hope to see you mid week 🙂
