Last week on the blog there wasn’t a great deal of detail about some of the things I’ve been throwing recently.
About a week ago I started working on some wheel thrown cylinder and bulb shaped mugs. Most of these have now been turned and their handles put on, they’re ready to go into the kiln for their biscuit firing.
Some of the bulbed mugs feature a little wren made from clay. Each of these has been created from a plaster press mould and affixed to the surface of the pot. I created the plaster mould around christmas time and I’ve been looking for an excuse to use it ever since!
I’m also in the process of developing some ceramic buttons, if you have any suggestions of what you particularly like or dislike about certain button designs I’d love to hear about it in the comments below!
I recently joined Artfire and UK Handmade so you can look me up on there as littlewrenpottery or Victoria Baker. My summery yellow splashed biscuit jar was featured on the cuteable.com website as part of Etsy’s euro week too.
