I have been making a few things lately
This one had a copper slip applied when wet
I was doing a throwing demonstration at a community function
at the Merigur Historic park.
If you are ever any where near Mildura it is a fabulous park
all donated and maintained by local farmers, old school house,
blacksmith shop, bakery. A real live museum depicting local heritage.
Just to be clear it is a static display most days but several times a year
it comes to life with all sorts of demonstrations and a fabulous lunch.
Tenmoku and Hyacinth blue (with a green tinge)
This one had the copper slip applied also
Hyacinth blue glaze over the top.
There has been some Raku going on at TAFE
Couldn't resist putting a few things through.
I also fired a lidded box, the lid fitted easily before I fired it.
I might use the lid for a key hide.
This one still works.
The Mildura Pottery Club is a bit excited about the new space.
Working bees are being planned for a concrete floor.
That's the next stage.
Walls will have to be stage 3.
There will be a roller door down near that trailer for clay delivery.
Freight cost are so high here we buy clay by the ton once per year,
We have been reading about a thermal regulator that works on drawing air
from a pipe buried 3 metres below the ground.
Sounds like I will have to fully investigate the concept before
any concrete is poured.
