Yesterday was the third ceramic workshop with Anna Keiller. It was another very enjoyable session.
First we finished off all the pieces we had made in the previous two weeks so they can be bisque fired before next week. Last week I made pieces to add glass fired in place onto. Above is my fishy wall plaque (yes I know I forgot to add any fins!!).....
...and below is another bowl I have made where I am going to experiment with adding some glass onto the bisque fired piece
and the outside of it.
Then we started making objects using coiling. Anna makes lovely fat birds and owls using this technique so I went for my very own fat baby penguin!
He is about six inches tall. I spent the rest of the workshop making him while I got the hang of this technique (who knew I would be rubbish at making the coils of clay for this when I make LOADS of snakes in silver clay these days :-0).
