Tricky but successful commission

I was happy to hear that my commission for a pig topped teapot has arrived safely at it's new home.
The new owner is very happy and I'm happy it survived the interstate delivery.

A few cooler days - now hot again

We had a few cooler days and I have more pots made -
still not happy with the latest teapot lid so back in the heat today to try a different style...
also finished decorating these mini dishes and teabag holders..

Enjoy the holiday weekend folks...

back in the very hot studio

January is probably our hottest month and with my studio facing west it gets very hot so I have had very little time where it has been cool enough to work...

It is also tricky to manage the drying of pieces... if they dry too quickly they are likely to crack...

I threw these dog bowls as demonstration pieces before Christmas.  I have now decorated them but am waiting for more pots to be ready before I fire them.
Once completed they will be donated to Assistance Dogs Australia on behalf of the Port Hacking Potters Group.

Sale Pending and lots happening


The Port Hacking Potters 50th National Pottery Competition opened on Saturday...
The winning entries were fantastic pieces of work.

Mine may not have won a prize amongst such high talent however it looks like I may have a sale.  The one on the right has interest shown which should become a sale, I hope, fingers crossed.
