Orange Peel Tea Pot

Nerina Cressey from Myra’s Monday evening class had kindly supplied a picture of her amazing ‘Orange Peel’ Teapot. The class are currently designing and making teapots and there are some really nice ones nearing completion.

Nerina’s is cobalt black with a textured ‘orange peel’ design. It is 6 and a half inches high and 11 ins from end of spout to end of handle.  She thinks it would probably provide tea for the entire group!

Thanks for sharing Nerina, I think its brilliant!

Pot Amnesty

In an attempt to make room on the glazed work shelves we are having a Pot Amnesty.  All pots that have become part of the furniture and have been collecting dust have been moved downstairs to the display cabinet (left hand side).

Please do have a look to see if anything in there is yours, or you know who it belongs to.  Anything without an owner after 11th June will go into the pot sale at the end of term.

Thanks

Good Knob!

Louis has kindly provided pictures of some more of his pots.  Good knob!……..and strategically placed magazine! Looks like a good use of Richard’s Glaze.

If anyone else would like to share pictures of their work, I will gladly add them to the blog if you send them to me.

Lovely Jugs!

Stayed late after class this morning and was lucky enough to bump into Louis Wilkes from Tuesday evenings.  I was admiring his pots, lovely glaze and lovely shape. Richard’s glaze over Tenmoku….that combination does appear to produce the most pleasing results.

Also envious of  the wine sampling that I am led to belived goes on a Tuesday evening, very chilled out.  Making pots whilst glugging wine also sounds like a good combo.  Guess that is the benefit of evening classes.  Don’t think it would do to crack open the wine before noon…..or maybe…….
