My Book is Now Available for Pre Ordering

Book Cover

I have just found out my long awaited book Pit Firing Ceramics: Modern Methods, Ancient Traditions is available for pre order on Amazon, Barnes & Noble & the Book Depository.

It is due to be released in America on 28th November 2013 with other countries to follow.

But if you can’t wait, of course, order it online!

Amazon

Barnes and Noble

The Book Depository

Am pretty excited – I have only seen a virtual copy of it for layout editing and the like, so it will be great to hold a hard copy in real life after such a long period of writing and proof reading.

I first submitted my proposal to Schiffer Publishing when I finished my PhD in 2009 – so it has been four years in the making.

I will keep you posted on hard copy release dates as they come to hand 🙂

Blackfiring: Saggar Bonfire

My most recent saggar bonfire was two weeks ago on the 16th November… we needed to clean up the underbrush from the property for the summer season, and whenever that happens I don’t pass up the opportunity to put some small works into the fire.

I am very happy with the outcomes, and will be making jewellery with the finished beads once I return from Italy. I am also happy with the little experimental teabowls I fired, and will definitely be doing more of those little gems.

The photo gallery below shows images of the process and step by step descriptions of the process. Click on the image for a larger view.

ENJOY!!
